Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Item #0053

55 days from transplanting. Indeterminate.
Only an heirloom tomato that came from the climate of Siberia could tolerate the fickle and sometimes cool temperatures that exasperate gardeners in spring! Red Siberian withstands cool temperatures and still sets fruit when other tomatoes have stopped producing! Provide support for vines that reach 6 feet or more.

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started indoors.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/8”

Seed Spacing:
A group of
3 seeds
every 24”

Row Spacing:
3’

Thinning:
When 2” tall
thin to 1
every 24”


When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
