We asked our friend Amadeus (of Swiss Biodynamic seed company Sativa) about an early, delicious and disease-resistant tomato; he smiled and said, “You know you ask for the Holy Grail?” (Ohhhh, we know!) “I don’t have the Holy Grail, but try Seiger.” We agree: Organic Seiger Tomato offers incredible amounts of delectable 4-ounce bright red fruits, early even in cool seasons and she produces for weeks after other varieties had succumbed to a number of diseases, including Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria. Short of a Holy Grail, try Seiger. She is our favorite early slicing tomato for the Northeast.

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.
Trellis helpful. Water soil, not leaves. Prune lowest stem “suckers” as they emerge.
Transplant Spacing: 2.5 feet Sun Needs: Full
Days to Harvest: 55
