Vegetables Tomatoes French Heritage Collection

French Heritage Collection

(F1) Tomato Seed

Product ID: 4722

New! Experience the flavor of Provence.

A great way to try these three exceptional hybrid heirloom types, bred in the Provence region of France. Dramatically improved yields and more marketable fruit than the old-world varieties they imitate. With proper management, flavor can match the heirlooms. NOTE: These varieties require a minimum of 13 hours of daylight at planting. Plants are very vigorous in early stages, and quickly become very generative when fully loaded with fruit. Prune the first fruit cluster for a longer harvest season. Collection includes one packet (15 seeds) each of Marnero, Margold, and Marbonne. See individual varieties for disease codes and other specific information. Indeterminate. Avg. 170,000 seeds/lb.

Additional Information



CULTURE: Sow seeds in desired medium 6-8 weeks prior to transplanting. Maintain 80-90°F (27-32°C) soil temperature. When first true leaves just show, transplant into cell-type containers or blocks. 2" or larger containers produce larger, stronger root systems; 4" blocks are the standard. Grow plants at 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): Avg. 11,100.
PACKET: 15 seeds.
