Virginia Sweets produces loads of enormous 1 pound, gorgeous red and gold bicolor tomatoes. The yellow flesh is fabulously sweet, and the red flesh delivers a delightful tang. Virginia Sweets' unique balance of sweetness and acidity make it one of the best tasting tomatoes you can grow. The indeterminate vines are heavy bearing and widely adapted.
A top performer in the 2017 Swallowtail Garden Seeds test garden, Virginia Sweets consistently set fruit throughout the season - even during the hottest days of summer, and the much cooler days of October and November. In fact as of November 11th of the 2017 season, Virginia Sweets vines were still flowering and setting fruit under tough, cool and rainy weather conditions.
Growing Virginia Sweets Heirloom Tomato Seeds
Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 75-90°F., germination is in 8-15 days. Transplant into the garden 2-4 ft. apart after all danger of frost.
Heirloom tomatoes grow too large for the typical 3 foot tomato cage. Begin by tying each plant to one 6 foot stake. Then create a 2 foot square with 4 stakes around each plant. Wrap garden twine around the stakes at 6 inch intervals up the square, adding more rows of twine as your plants get taller.
