Suggested Planting Requirements: Tomatoes can be direct sown or transplanted. For direct sowing, garden beds must be prepped, and soil should be above 60 degrees. If you decide to transplant, start seeds in the greenhouse six weeks before the last frost, then transplant them into your garden. Tomatoes are unique in that they can be buried very deep. The tiny white hairs on the vegetable stalk will form roots. Some gardeners suggest planting them sideways. Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost before planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5 and 7.0. Soil should be moist at planting time. Watering should be done at weekly intervals and overwatering avoided. To prevent disease, avoid overhead watering and water at the soil level.

Growing Recommendations: Tomatoes require full sun for healthy and fast growth. A balanced organic fertilizer should be added before planting in the garden. If you are aware of calcium deficiencies in your soil, it is likely your tomatoes will suffer from blossom end rot, which is easily taken care of with the addition of a calcium amendment to the soil. During the growing season, water at the soil level of the plants avoiding getting the foliage wet. Prune excess foliage and suckers for maximum production. More information on pruning suckers here. Pruning also helps to increase airflow for tomatoes and can help prevent diseases. Keep a lookout for pests like whiteflies, which can decrease production.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits are slightly tender to the squeeze of a finger. This may be before the tomatoes are fully colored.

History: This interesting tomato originated in 1890 with the name White Peach. It was Dennis Schlicht from Northeastern Iowa who named it the Wapsipinicon Peach after he further developed it into the tomato we love today!
