HEIRLOOM If we could only grow one single slicing tomato, this would be it. A Swiss heirloom and a Brandywine cousin, the depth of rich fruit flavor makes Organic Rose de Berne Tomato our favorite for sandwiches and, truly, everything else. Her soft, translucent pink skin rarely cracks, even on the largest of the 4 to 6-ounce tomatoes. Rose de Berne is pure abundance once she starts producing and some Late Blight tolerance offers extra weeks of harvest even when disease arrives.

When to sow: 6-8 weeks before last frost

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 helpful. Water soil, not leaves. Prune lowest stem “suckers” as they emerge.
