Grushovka - Compact Paste Tomato

Regular price $4.00 USD

This Siberian heirloom produces loads of dense and delicious, pinkish plum-shaped fruit on compact plants. 'Grushovka' is a compact plant coming in at around 2-3 feet max that is well-suited to container growing. I especially like the fruit for sauces, straight-up canning, or better ye: homemade ketchup [see my recipes for both here]. YUM!

Special Notes: Compact, bushy, determinate.  Russian Heirloom. Mid- season. 70 days.  No less than 20 seed per packet. Grown and harvested in the 2018 gardening season.

Seed Starting and Growing: Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.

 

About You Grow Girl Seeds:

All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
