TOMATOES GOLDEN QUEEN

Description
Golden Queen or Jubilee Tomato Seeds (Yellow Fruited Type) 2340 Heirloom Vegetable. Introduced in the early 1880’s, this tomato starts to produce inviting yellow tomatoes by mid-season. Nicely shaped, thick walled, meaty low-acid tomatoes weigh on average 200-300 g (8-12 oz) and have a very mild, pleasing taste. Indeterminate growth pattern (individual fruits ripen successively over many days)

How to Grow
350 seed/gram Sow seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before last spring frost date – use a peat moss based growing mix for germination and growing seedlings. The temperature of the seeding mix should be 21-24 C (70 – 75 F) for prompt germination. When the seedlings are 4 cm (1.75″) high, transplant each into individual peat pots – reducing temperature to 15–18 C (59 – 65 F) until planting in the garden late May. After hardening off, transplant into well-drained organic soil 60 cm (24″) apart for determinate varieties and 90 cm (36″) apart for indeterminate varieties. Tomatoes need warmth, direct sunlight & a steady supply of water. Keep plants well-watered Apply the water to the soil rather than showering down over the plants. Rotate the crop position in the garden every year. Wait three years to use the same patch in the garden. Dig out and discard diseased plants. Do not compost. It is also very important to keep plants evenly watered as fluctuations in available soil moisture can lead to a host of problems such as fruit cracking or splitting, irregular fruiting and increasing the chance of blossom end rot developing. Apply a mulch of straw around plants to protect them from soil borne diseases and to help conserve soil moisture.
