Wholesale Aunt Rubys German Green Tomato Seeds
It's been about 10 years since I bought my first German green tomatoes from the wholesale market. I was a bit worried at first because they're not as big as regular tomatoes, and they grow really fast. When I first cut them open, I thought they were smooth. I was very wrong! They had that rough leathery texture, much like a grape. They have great flavor too.
So I'm always on the lookout for good wholesale sources. One of the easiest ways I've found is by searching on the Internet. All it takes is a few clicks of your mouse and you can find any variety of seeds you'd ever want to grow. If you live in a colder climate, you may want to consider a cold-pressed variety.
If you're not familiar with this type of tomato, it actually comes from the plant's reproductive organ called the plug. The fruit's actual name is "ovarium." The plug is what grows into the fruit. They have this characteristic when they're in the ground; you'll notice that they'll go into these little pockets on the underside of leaves.
They are perfect to use in salads and soups, and can be eaten right out of the container. When you're ready to harvest them you just pick up the whole thing and cut off the excess seeds. It's usually best to pick them before the soil's dry so that they'll have a firm foot hold. This is something that you don't want to do if you plan to replant them. If you want to, just keep them in a sunny window.
When you buy these seeds they come in individual bags. Each bag contains around three or four pounds of these tasty little gems. You won't find any artificial additives in them, which is what makes them taste so great. That being said, some people like to sprinkle a little bit of pepper on top after they're ready to use them to add a bit of zest. That's completely up to you.
You can plant these at home, or you can buy them ready-made and transplant them yourself. Whichever method you choose, be sure to dig a hole about six inches deep and then spread them out evenly. If you're planting them in a garden, you will need to line the bottom of the hole with some sphagnum moss. That's all there is to it. If you're planting them in a pot, just add water to the mixture and let it set.
Now it's time to check the weather. If you live in an area that gets really cold, you might not want to plant those tomatoes until the middle of March or later. During that time, temperatures may drop below freezing for at least a day and you don't want your plants to be damaged by it. But if you live in a warmer climate, that's no problem!
All in all, I really enjoyed growing my wholesale Aunt Rubys German green tomato seeds. They're tough, sweet, and delicious. And they make a fantastic addition to any salad or side dish. So keep buying them and give them away. You never know, they'll become your favorites.
And if you have a garden in your yard, those seeds will come in handy. After all, no one likes to eat tomatoes that have been grown in soil that was not prepared properly. If you plant them in the wrong place, you'll be wasting your time. That said, here are a few suggestions. Just follow your heart!
Plant them as seedlings right next to the onions and bell peppers in your garden. That way, you won't have to pick them. Instead, you'll be able to enjoy eating them right off the vine. And because they're so small, you'll have a better crop. I also recommend putting your German green tomato seeds in a paper pot and placing them in a sunny window.
When the tomatoes start to bloom, you'll know that it's time for harvesting. But you don't have to do it that early. Wait at least two weeks after you planted them. That way, they'll have a healthy growing environment in which to produce larger and healthier tomatoes. The key is to always be sure that your wholesale Aunt Rubys German green tomato seeds get the proper amount of sun and water to grow properly.
