CREAM SAUSAGE Tomato Seeds
Price for Package of 5 seeds.
What have we here?! This oblong yellow tomato really does look like a stuffed sausage -- but the flavor is rich, tangy, sweet, and pure tomato! An heirloom variety that ripens all at once on easy-to-grow, no-stake bush plants, Cream Sausage is the Roma (paste) tomato you've been looking for.
These charming little fruits are about 3 inches long, with a pointed end and nicely full, firm flesh of creamy ivory. They arise very heavily on compact plants, ripening from green to a pale shade of golden-orange. What a different look for pasta sauce, salsa, and sandwiches!
73 days from setting out transplants. Determinate.
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Because this tomato is determinate (meaning that it sets its crop all at once), you may want to stagger the sowing of these seeds so that you get successive harvests.
Plant the seedlings outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2½ to 3 feet apart; no staking or caging is needed for this bushy little 3-foot plant.
