Tomato Plum Yellow
Myro Farms Garden Center
Yellow Plum' is a very old variety that has been popular among gardeners for a very long time. The regular leaf plants are large, open, very productive, and do benefit from sturdy support. It yields large amounts of small, 1 by 1¼ inch, oval-shaped fruits that taste mild and sweet. As mentioned previously, 'Yellow Plum' is old and one of the first named commercial varieties. As a matter of fact, it has remained popular, contributing to its survival, about as far back as tomato seeds became available in seed catalogs. The oldest reference that I could find in our horticultural library is the 1858, J. M. Thorburn & Co. catalog but by the 1870s, nearly all seed merchants were offering it to their customers. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Grow It Yourself:
Get your Planting Trays or Pots ready. Use good Seed Starting Mix or Cocopeat or Potting Mix. Moisten the mix and plant the seed 3 times its size deeper in the mix. For example if the seed is 1 mm , then plant it 3 mm deep in the mix. Very small seeds can be sprinkled on top of the mix and covered with a very thin layer of mix. Spray the mix with water and cover with a plastic cover till you see germination. remove cover and keep in semi-shade location till seedling is 3 -4 inchs, then transplant seedling or move your pot in Sunny location.
