Seeds or seedlings

The ox heart tomato 'Orange' is a perennial, early, very ancient and rare rod tomato variety originating from Russia. The robust and first-class tasting variety is only slightly propagated today and is therefore a specialty. The high-yielding plant forms large approx. 250g heavy, orange, heart-shaped fruits and develops only a few nuclei. The taste of the fleshy and juicy fruits is incomparably fruity-sweet and aromatic.

Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
From February after the last frosts, sow directly into the open air. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to April.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow into the frost-free open air in mid-May immediately after the ice saints. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from March to May. The seedlings are separated into the bed from the 3rd Pair of leaves after the cotyledders.

General
The best time to germinate tomatoes is the first warm summer week in spring. After the seeds have germinated at warm temperatures, the seedlings need cool temperatures. We always recommend the pre-culture, for this purpose let the seedlings grow in a small bowl up to the first tomato leaves, then pik into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at moderate temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings.
Tomatoes Prefer a sunny Location with a permeable, always moist, nutrient-rich-humus and slightly loamy soil. Prepare the soil for tomatoes with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Meat tomato plants are generally cultivated with 1 or 2 shoots. We recommend a framework for tying the tomato shoots. In order to stimulate the root growth and thus the plant growth of the plants, put the seedlings deeper into the soil, up to the leaf axis of the cotyledons. Sufficient and uniform irrigation has a positive effect on the quality of the fruit. At temperatures below 5 °C, the plant reduces its growth. A regular harvest promotes yield. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds. Propagation via cuttings is possible.

Care Plants
The bed in which tomatoes grow should never dry out completely, regular watering is necessary to keep the growth of the plants stable. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.

Germination ability of seeds: 8-9 years
