Originally from Peru, this amazing tomato was introduced to US gardens in the 1860s. The 2-3 oz fruits have a peach-like fuzz and are yellow, often with a hint of pink blush when fully ripe and truly resemble a peach. This variety is an excellent producer.
Start tomatoes indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring, sowing the seeds in a flat 1/4" deep and 1" apart. Keep the temperature at 70-75 degrees F until germination, as well as providing adequate light in a sunny window or under a grow light. Keep the soil moist, but make sure drainage is adequate. When the second set of leaves emerges, transplant the seedlings into individual pots burying the stems up to the lowest set of leaves to grow strongly rooted plants. A week before planting the seedlings outside, begin exposing them to the weather during the day to harden them. Tomatoes cannot endure cold weather and should not be transplanted outside until all threat of frost has passed. When the soil temperature reaches at least 70 degrees F, plant the seedlings in full sun and very rich soil... once more, burying the entire stem up to the lowest set of leaves. If providing a trellis, space the plants 2' apart, but if allowing the vines to spread, space the plants 3-4' apart. Indeterminate tomatoes often perform best with support.
