Combine the rich flavor and strong fragrance of heirloom tomatoes with the unusual look of slightly flattened fruit and gold to green skins. What do you get? Heirloom Green Hybrid Tomato, of course! You’ll love this distinctive beefsteak, which is heavy producer of 11- to 12-ounce fruits all season long.
Heirloom Green Hybrid offers the perfect blend of sugars and acids, creating a bite that is tangy, meaty, and sweet. The fruit is wide and flattish, making it even easier into big, luscious slices for sandwiches. It begins lime green, then turns deep yellow to golden at full maturity. You’ll be able to smell it before you see it — a mouthwatering expereince every time!
This indeterminate (meaning that the vines keep growing taller and bearing more fruit all season long) plant is very easy to grow, too. The seeds have an exceptionally high germination rate, so even if you’ve never tried growing tomatoes from seed before, Heirloom Green Hybrid won’t let you down!
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Transplant into the garden spaced 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart. This colorful, delicious beefsteak was mentioned by the Daily Press in February 2014, echoing our claim that this flavorful heirloom produces “the world’s greatest fried green tomatoes.”
