Symbols Explained

Greenhouse Performer

Greenhouse Performer

This symbol is assigned to only those varieties that we have found, based on our trials, to be the best performers in a climate-controlled greenhouse environment. These varieties have been selected based on proven vigor and disease resistance to sustain healthy growth through a longer season, high yields to justify the investment in the structure, and excellent flavor and appearance.

DRO138TX (F1)

DRO138TX (F1)(F1) Tomato Seed

3091

Product ID: 3091

Strong, generative rootstock for a more balanced crop.

DRO138TX is less vigorous and more balanced than vegetative rootstocks like Maxifort or Colossus. Growers who have experienced excessively vegetative growth with these rootstocks will want to try a more generative rootstock which puts a higher proportion of energy into the fruit over leaves and shoots. This may result in a higher yield and less labor pruning and trellising. DRO138TX should work well with crops that are in cultivation six months or less, in unheated hoophouses, or with small fruited (less than 100 gm) varieties that are growing for any length of time. For use as rootstock only. Avg. 149,200 seeds/lb.

Growing Information

Tomatoes



CULTURE: Sow seeds in desired medium 6-8 weeks prior to transplanting. Maintain a constant 80-90°F (27-32°C) soil temperature. When first true leaves just show, transplant the seedlings into cell-type containers or blocks. 2" or larger containers will produce larger, stronger root systems; 4" blocks are the standard. Grow plants at a constant 66-68°F (19-20°C) day and night temperature. After cotyledon leaves have expanded, fertilize with a complete nutrient solution (EC 1.0, pH 5.8) or equivalent as needed to keep plants dark green and healthy; increase EC as plants grow. When transplanting into the greenhouse, maintain 73-77°F (23-25°C) day and night temperature for a few days after transplanting to promote rapid vegetative growth and root establishment. Once fruit begins to set, lower night temperature to 62-66°F (17-19°C) and keep a daytime temperature of 68-72°F (20-22°C).
TRELLISING: It is recommended to prune the plants to 1-2 stems and trellis up a string.
HARVEST: Fully vine-ripen fruit only for local retailing or use. Pick fruit less ripe the further the distance and the longer the time between harvest and the customer.
DISEASES AND PESTS: Use crop rotation or new media to reduce soil-borne disease problems. Regularly schedule releases of beneficial insects to control pests.
DAYS TO MATURITY: From transplanting.
Transplants: Avg. 950 plants/1,000 seeds.
SEED SPECS: Seeds/oz.: (varies): 6,875-15,625 (avg. 8,750).
PACKET: 15 seeds, unless otherwise noted.
