Tomato Burpee's Long-Keeper

This was an introduction from Burpee in 1979, Tomato Long Keeper is a must for winter storage. Staying fresh for 6 to 12 weeks or more, it provides fruits for fresh use during the autumn and into the winter. The skin of these fruits is a golden orange-red when ripe. Store fruits at 18-20C making sure that none touch each other. It is an indeterminate type.

Sow the seeds indoors on a warm kitchen windowsill or a greenhouse. Sow the seeds in a pot around 0.5cm deep and cover with a thin layer of compost. Keep the pot well-watered and warm. An ideal temperature of 15 – 20C is perfect. The seedlings will start to appear after 7 – 15 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant them into individual pots. Keep them growing on in cooler but not cold conditions. If the plants get too cold they will stop growing and struggle to get going again.
