If cooking sauce is your thing, we have the tomato for you! The Saucy Lady Tomato is the absolute best sauce tomato we have ever tried. This determinate open-pollinated tomato produces extremely firm, deep red fruits that cook down beautifully to make the smoothest pasta sauces and pastes you’ve ever had. The Saucy Lady Tomato is super productive and will put out a large crop of medium-sized dense oblong fruits with a sweet flavor profile. These 3-4 oz. tomatoes are also excellent candidates for canning. Solanum Lycopersicum. 80 Days To Maturity.
Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at the bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seeds. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.
If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
