'Blush' is a beautiful, golden saladette-sized plum variety that features striking ruby red stripes. It is very similar in shape to another variety I offer, "Striped Diana' and a favourite I do not called 'Maglia Rosa.' In fact, it happens to be the progeny of 'Maglia Rosa' crossed with another unavailable variety (created by breeder Fred Hempel).
Unlike 'Striped Diana' and 'Maglia Rosa,' 'Blush does not feature the same wispy foliage and growth habit. It has a much more typical tomato leaf and sturdy indeterminate growth. That said, I've had great success growing it on a hot, concrete parking pad inside a deep (16"+) and wide trug-type container with a couple of basil plants as companions. Even in such harsh conditions the plant was very productive and the fruit absolutely divine.
Expect lots of sweet, juicy, bright and fruity-flavoured tomatoes. I find this type of tomato is very versatile as the size makes it perfect for slicing on salads, or drying in an oven or dehydrator. It also makes a wonderfully fruity sauce.
Indeterminate vines. Gold with ruby red stripes. Great for drying or sauce! Can be grown in an x-large container. Mid-season. Approximately 70 days.
No less than 15 seed per packet. [Please note that the number of seeds per package varies with each variety and is dependant on stock. Some varieties produce less seed than others so I adjust accordingly.]
Grown and harvested in the 2017 gardening season.
Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.
About My 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. More about my seeds can be found in the About section.

Love Gayla's books! The seeds have sprouted and are doing great!
Sorry, at this time I am only able to ship seeds to Canada and the the US.
