Organic Tomato: Amana Orange Planting Instructions:
Amana Orange Tomato seeds thrive with plenty of light and transplants continue to grow well in full sun. Consider using a grow light to start. Sow seeds six to eight weeks before transplanting outside. Plant seeds 1/4" deep in 3-4" pots. Allow for plenty of light but ensure 8 hours of darkness in every 24 hour cycle. Harden off seedlings by gradually reducing water and fertilizer prior to transplanting. Avoid exposure to cold temperatures which can diminish their growth. Sow seedlings 1/4" deep, 2' apart, in rows spaced 3-4" apart. Seeds planted too closely together may increase the chance of disease and decrease yield. Provide trellis or other supports for easier care of plants and harvesting.

Organic Tomato: Amana Orange Harvesting Instructions:
Amana Orange Tomatoes are ready to harvest 85-90 days after planting. Test the ripeness of tomatoes by pressing them gently; the flesh should yield slightly. Mature color also indicates ripeness. If the stem does not come easily off the vine, cut it with a pair of scissors. Vine ripened tomatoes have the best flavor, but as soon as frost comes, all tomatoes should be harvested, even the green ones. Unripe tomatoes will ripen eventually if kept in a warm place out of direct sunlight

Did You Know This About the Amana Orange Tomato?
The "Amana" Tomato gets its name from an everyday gardener who named the plant after his workplace, Amana Refrigeration in Iowa. Amana Orange Tomato seeds were released to the Seed Savers Exchange in 1984.
