Tomato - Floradade
Tomatoes are probably the most popular vegetable to try and grow in the Garden. If you are new to Florida gardening then the biggest challenge you will face when growing tomatoes is knowing when to plant.
This is the Floradade variety that was actually created at the University of Florida. These tomatoes love the warm Florida weather and they produce a ton of 5-7 ounce tomatoes. Great for slicing and putting on sandwiches!
When to Plant:
- North Florida: February & August
- Central Florida: March & August
- South Florida: March - August
Planting instructions: Plant in a spot with full sun and well-draining soil. Give each plant 36” of space between each other. Sow directly into the garden or start transplants undercover. Plant seeds about ¼ “ deep and water regularly.
Germination time: 5 - 10 Days
Days to Maturity: 85 days
Number of seeds per pack: 30-40

Not much luck
Maybe started too early. Seedlings came up, but we’re stunted and never progressed
Great product. I will plant again.
Amish Paste Toms
All the seeds germinated. If it hadn’t been for the cooler weather recently more would have survived. I’ve got about 8 in the ground now. Should be plenty for sure!
