15x Argentina Tomato Seeds
A prolific heirloom plant producing big, 3 to 4-inch, pink beefsteak fruits with excellent sweet/acid tomato flavors.
The ripe fruit almost looks like it is carved from wax. It almost looks too good to eat! One of the prettiest tomatoes I've ever seen.
All our garden seeds are hand-selected and packaged in resealable airtight bags (each bag is individually labeled), and for the current growing season. The seeds are from organically grown plants grown in Ojai, California.
1. Fill the pots with potting mix to within a 1/2-inch of the top and place a pair of seeds on top of the soil in each one near the center of the pot (having two is good insurance in case one doesn’t sprout. Pinch off the smaller, weaker of the two if they both sprout).
2. Cover them with a ¼-inch layer of soil mix and the compress the soil with your fingers. Good seed-to-soil contact is important for germination.
3. Sprinkle water on the seeds whenever the top of the soil mix appears dry. Don’t keep the soil soggy, however – the seeds may rot.
The seeds will need a sunny window with at least 4 hours of direct sun each day, but preferably more. Also: the warmer it is, the faster tomato seeds will germinate. Maintaining room temperature above 60ºF will get the job done, but can also use seedling heat mats or heat lamps. A simple way is to cover the pots tightly with plastic and take advantage of the greenhouse effect to warm up the soil when the sun is out and hold on to the heat at night!
All seeds are shipped in recycled paper envelopes.
