Tasti-Lee tomato seeds are the result of years of exhaustive conventional plant breeding. This is a fantastic hybrid with three prized features. First, the flavour is sensational, balancing perfectly sweetness and acidity. Second, they contain up to 50% more of the antioxidant lycopene than most other tomatoes. Finally, they remain in very good eating condition for weeks after harvesting, giving them a longer shelf life than the rest. The plump round fruits are bright red inside and out, appearing on compact bush plants that have a very concentrated set around 75 days after transplant. Tasti-Lee is resistant to Fusarium races 1-3, and Verticillium.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.
Determinate (bush), Matures in 75 days. (Hybrid seeds)
Start indoors in early spring over bottom heat. When seedlings germinate, remove from the heat and grow under bright lights. Grow seedlings on for 6-8 weeks at around 10°C (50°F). Early season tomatoes can be planted out once night time temperatures are reliably above 7°C (45°F) - or later. Other types should be transplanted out when night time lows are 10°C (50°F) or warmer - or later. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 25-35°C (68-95°F). With bottom heat seeds should germinate in 7-14 days.
Sow seeds 5mm-1cm (¼-½”) deep. Keep seedlings under very bright light to prevent legginess. You may have to pot on seedlings more than once before they go out to allow for root growth. Space bush (determinate) transplants 45-60cm (18-24″) apart and vine (indeterminate) types 50-75cm (20-30″) apart in rows 1m (3′) apart.
Another sensitive plant when it comes to companions, tomatoes benefit from asparagus, basil, beans, borage, carrots, celery, chives, collards, cucumber, garlic, lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, and peppers. Avoid planting alongside Brassicas and dill. Corn will attract tomato pests, and kohlrabi will stunt tomatoes’ growth. Potatoes may spread blight to tomatoes, so keep them apart. Do no plant tomatoes near walnut trees.
