85 Days to maturity (from transplant). Solanum lycoperscium. Caribe Tomato Seeds. Non-GMO, annual, open-pollinated, heirloom, determinate, slicing tomato. Suitable for growing in garden plots, raised beds, and greenhouses. Resistant to Anthracnose, Fusarium Wilt (Race 1), and Verticillium Wilt. Caribe tomato seeds grow well in both humid and dry climates, so they're an easy choice no matter what zone you live in. ~7,500 seeds/oz.
Caribe tomato seeds produce determinate tomato plants that remain compact and easy to care for whether they are grown in containers or in garden rows. Tolerant of both humid and dry climates, the Caribe tomato is an excellent choice for growing as an annual in all USDA hardiness zones.
As is the case with most tomatoes, Caribe tomato seeds should be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks before your area's last frost date. Tomatoes prefer warm weather and are intolerant to frost, so it is best to harden off the seedlings and transplant them into the garden after your nighttime temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F.
Tomatoes prefer soil that is slightly acidic to neutral. Be sure your site drains well and gets at least 8 hours of sunlight each day.
Throughout the growing season, be sure to water the Caribe tomato plants consistently to prevent blossom end rot and fruit cracking.
Various Uses for Caribe Tomatoes:
Caribe heirloom tomatoes are the picture-perfect tomato with a globe-like shape, 8-oz. size, and bright red color. They are excellent for fresh use on salads and for slicing up for sandwiches and burgers. Pair Caribe tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette to make a delicious caprese salad.
Caribe Tomato Benefits:
Tomatoes are rich in vitamins C, A, and K, and they support heart health with lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, plus potassium, niacin, folate, and vitamin B6.
While tomatoes are native to South America and Central America, they're now one of the most widely grown vegetables (botanically a fruit) around the world.
Heirloom tomatoes are open-pollinated tomato varieties that are popular with people who save seeds as well as people shopping fresh markets for the best-tasting tomatoes.

Determinate - Determinate tomatoes are more compact, bush-type plants that set their fruit all at once and end the harvest. They won't continue to produce tomatoes after that. By planting multiple plants in intervals a week apart, you can continue to harvest for longer periods.
Well-draining, loose (sandy loam), slightly acidic (6.2 to 6.8), and moisture retaining. Too much nitrogen in the soil may lead to more foliage production and less fruiting. Tomatoes like more phosphorus and potassium than other vegetables.

Late - Ready to harvest from 81 days or more from transplant. Difficult, if not impossible, to get a tomato by the 4th of July with these varieties. They are good late-summer to early-fall producers for most USDA Zones.
Pests and Diseases:
Resistant to Anthracnose, Fusarium Wilt (Race 1), Verticillium Wilt. Common pests known to harm tomato plants, in general, include the tomato hornworm, cutworm, aphids, flea beetles, tomato fruit worms, and whiteflies. Also, watch for common diseases such as blossom end rot, fusarium wilt, powdery mildew, verticillium wilt, late blight, bacterial canker/spot, and tobacco mosaic virus. Most of these can be prevented by maintaining a regular watering schedule and avoiding overwatering. Regularly check your plants for pest damage throughout the season. For treating pest and disease problems, we recommend using an organic neem-based product.
