Wholesale True Black Brandywine Tomato Seeds
In the previous article we looked at how to grow and then harvest your own tomatoes using true black (or real) brandy wine. In this one we are going to look at the same issue for seeds and why it might be better to go for wholesale. When you are growing a vineyard crop of tomatoes you can never be sure that every tomato seed will germinate and grow to produce healthy fruit. Sometimes the flowers are fine, other times the fruits are small or misshapen. This is because a lot of different things can affect the success rate of seeds. Luckily, there are some things you can do to make sure that you are getting a higher quality crop from each seed.
It is important for a variety of reasons that you only buy wholesale tomato seeds that were grown in an area that was not affected by severe weather or disease. This means that you can be assured that each seed has been passed on to a larger audience of people that have the right conditions to germinate and grow into healthy tomatoes. By only buying the best seed you increase the odds of success in that each plant will reproduce itself and you end up with large crops. While you do have to make sure your plants are kept watered and treated if need be, this is minimal and should not cost too much time and effort.
There are a few tricks to keep in mind when you are buying seeds. One trick is to make sure that they are dry. This makes sure that the moisture level in them is at its optimum. If they are not dry enough then the germination process will be delayed. There is less chance of seeds germinating if they are wet.
You will also find that some wholesale seeds are sold by the pound. For each pound of seed you end up with ten or twelve units. This is a great way to save money. You just have to be sure you buy from a reputable source.
The other thing you want to watch for is how old the tomato seeds are. True Black BBQ tomato seeds are generally pretty old but some companies might try to sell them to you at a younger age. Be aware that tomato seeds do not last long and you will have to replace them more often. You do want to make sure they are fresh though so keep that in mind.
Make sure that when you are choosing which seeds you want, you do consider the space you have available to use. True Black Brandywine tends to be very large so you will want to consider how much room you have to work with. You may be limited on space if you live in a small apartment or if you have a smaller yard. Smaller yards can be hit hard by bad weather so be prepared. Most of the time, the weather is not bad and can bring your tomatoes back to the garden more quickly.
Another thing you want to be aware of is the taste of the tomato seed. If you don't care for the taste of the seed then it is not going to work out for you. Some people may think that they have to change the taste of their tomato crops every time they plant them but that is not true. Some of the seeds do not have very strong flavors, so you may be able to get by with a less intense taste.
It is also important to remember that the older a seed is, the better chance it has of surviving the first year. You don't want to try to save money by getting the cheaper seed because chances are it is not going to last long. Save your money for another year and go with the wholesale, true black brandywine varieties instead. Keep in mind that most varieties do not vine very well so you are likely going to have to replant your tomatoes each year if you want them to keep producing. This means that you will have to buy more tomatoes in the future and you will have to pay more money, but it is all worth it in the end.
