HEIRLOOM San Marzano was our go-to roma-style paste tomato until we met Ten Fingers of Naples and Friends, we haven’t looked back.
We’re biased of course, since Fruition is here in Naples, New York, but her rich flavor as well as long, luscious trusses of fruit (hence the ‘Ten Fingers’ of her name!) are impressive. Also, Organic Ten Fingers of Naples Tomato is remarkably early, though not surprising, since she was gifted to us from our dear friend Owen Bridge of Annapolis Seeds in Nova Scotia. With few seeds and delectable meat, Ten Fingers of Naples is our go-to for sauce and salsa, along with Italian Heirloom, and we look so forward to sharing such abundance with you!

Planting Method: Transplant Only
When to sow: 6-8 weeks before last frost
Seed Depth: 1/8 inch Days to Germination: 7-10 at 80°F (27°C)
Sowing and seedling care: Don’t start too early! Sow indoors 2 seeds/cell or soil block, & thin to 1. We recommend sowing on a heat mat at 80°F to emergence, 75°F after. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings. Pot up to 3-4” pots when first true leaves, submerging 3/4 of the stem below soil.
When to transplant: Harden off & transplant outdoors after frost, again burying stem.
Strong 3′ trellis optional but helpful. Water soil, not leaves. Prune lowest stem “suckers” as they emerge.
Transplant Spacing: 2.5 feet Sun Needs: Full
Days to Harvest: 75
Harvest: Perfect for sauces/salsas!
