Growing Instructions:

  • Planting: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Transplant seedlings outdoors once the danger of frost has passed.
  • Sunlight: Provide full sun exposure, ensuring the plants receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
  • Soil: Choose well-draining, fertile soil enriched with organic matter. Maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (6.0-7.0) for optimal growth.
  • Spacing: Space plants 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and prevent diseases.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogged conditions. Water at the base of the plant to minimize the risk of fungal diseases.
  • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the plants to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
  • Support: As an indeterminate variety, Hungarian Heart tomatoes benefit from sturdy supports like stakes or cages to prevent sprawling and ensure proper fruit development.
  • Fertilization: Use a balanced fertilizer or organic compost to provide essential nutrients. Begin fertilizing when the first fruits appear and continue throughout the growing season.
  • Pruning: Remove suckers and excess foliage to promote better air circulation and focus energy on fruit production.
  • Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when they reach full size and develop a rich colour. Gently twist or cut the fruits from the plant, and store them at room temperature for optimal flavour.
