A family heirloom from Mike Stefancsik that he named after his wife. Produces 2 ounce, oval shaped tomatoes that are lightly speckled with gold stripes. Slightly sweet, but with good tomato flavour. Grows to over 10 feet and keeps producing huge numbers of fruit per plant. Indeterminate. (produce all season!)
Start seed indoors 6 – 8 weeks before transplanting out to the garden. Cover seeds with 1/2 cm (1/4 in) of soil. Firm soil over seed. Keep moist but not waterlogged. To germinate maintain a soil temperature of 24 C (75 F). Seed should germinate in 6 – 10 days. Once seeds have sprouted, 14 – 16 hours of light per day is essential. Once plants have reached 12 cm (5 in) transplant to 6 cm (3 in) peat pots. Place the root ball at the bottom of the pot, filling pot with soil will ensure better root development along the stem. Plants will develop better with a growing temperature of 17 C (62 F) until transplanting out. Fertilize weekly with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong root development. Do not transplant out till night temperatures are warm.
