Solanum lycopersicum

As the name suggests, this variety of tomato produces yellow, pear shaped fruit that is sweet and juicy. Originating in Europe in the 18th century, this is a heavy yielding, heirloom staple for the home gardener. Tomatoes are nitrogen-hungry so soil must be prepared with a mix of compost and chicken manure dug through the patch  two weeks prior to planting. Choose a sunny, well-drained spot, preferably in a position where you have not grown tomatoes the previous season. 

How to plant: Propagate in seed trays. Tomatoes can be grown in large pots but do best in-ground.  It is recommended to pinch out the first shoots to encourage plant growth.

Cool climate: October-December
