PRITCHARD'S SCARLET TOPPER
This very drought and disease resistant American heirloom variety produces bright scarlet, globe-shaped fruits which are distinctively flavoured and heavy-cropping. In 1943 the Burpee Seed Catalog stated, "The ideal, all-purpose tomato for growing in soil of high fertility" and in 1953, Farmer Seed & Nursery Co. in Minnesota stated, "We consider this the most valuable new introduction of the present time". A good variety even now to add to your list of desirable tomato varieties - this has certainly stood the test of time! (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into grow bags.
