Solanum lycopersicum 'Wild Sweetie'

General description

Indeterminate variety. Red currant heirloom sized fruit, abundant yield. Widely spreading plants. Sweet tomato, tastes like candy. 

Plant requirements

Tomatoes like a nice warm area in full sun, and need at least 8 hours of sunlight a day, or they get spindly and produce little mature fruit. 

They like soil that has a pH of 5.5 - 6.8, is fertile, deep, well-drained, and that is rich in organic matter. 

Maintenance

If the soil stays soggy where you want to plant, build a raised bed.

You want soil that will hold water as evenly as possible because uneven uptake of water can cause all kinds of problems with tomatoes including flower drop, fruit splitting and blossom-end rot.
