Renee's Garden - We’ve specially imported this traditional Italian favorite with plump, delicious fruits that have pretty pleated shoulders, beautiful color & absolutely scrumptious flavor. Costoluto's strong indeterminate vines grow tall and heavy with big crops of tender, juicy, rich red tomatoes.
Instructions - In early spring, start indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80°F. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When 2 inches tall, transplant into individual 4-inch pots, burying stems up to the base of leaves. Maintain at 70-75°F. Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant, then gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. When nights reach 55°F, transplant 3 feet apart into rich soil in full sun. Prepare the soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant several inches deeper than seedlings were growing in containers. Provide strong stakes or tall wire cages at planting time. Mulch to provide even moisture retention; don’t overwater once fruit begins to ripen. For the best flavor, pick red-ripe, and don’t store in the refrigerator.
