Jersey Breeze Tomato
Certified Organic Seed
The perfect red tomato of a gardener's dreams.
Classic Jersey tomatoes harken back to a time when New Jersey farmers grew tasty vine ripened tomatoes to compete with trucked-in gas ripened counterparts from the other coasts after the Jersey canning industry lost out to those markets too. Jersey tomatoes were known to be juicier, tastier and better than those picked green. Sound familiar? With seasonal and fresh being popular these days too, we can uphold Jersey Breeze among a long line of tomatoes bred to be grown outdoors, in less than ideal conditions, and still remain juicy, tart, sweet, and toothsome.

Start seeds indoors early, about 10 weeks before last frost. Seeds germinate best at 80 degrees F. Do not over water, and keep temperature warm but not hot to prevent damping off. Transplant outdoors after threat of frost has passed. Provide with proper support. A bit of pruning increasing yield of fruit. Do not over water, and water at the base of the plant if possible to help reduce occurance of disease. Harvest when tomatoes are fully ripe for best flavor.
