After the last frost date, the seedlings are transplanted about two-thirds of the way into well-drained soil. The transplants require good moisture and trellising or caging, as the vines can grow several feet tall.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eVarious Culinary Uses for Aunt Ruby's Green German Tomato Seeds:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAunt Ruby's Green German tomato seeds result in large beefsteaks. While everyone loves a red, sweet, sugary tomato, these spicy treasures provide a nice contrast in flavor and color to traditional garden tomatoes. Given their large size, they are great sliced in a BLT. They're also the perfect color for a light, delicious green salsa verde to accompany your summer dishes. These heirloom tomatoes can also be canned, frozen, and dehydrated.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAunt Ruby's Green German Tomato Benefits:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAunt Ruby's Green German tomatoes are rich in vitamins, such as vitamins B, C, and K. But where they really shine is in their potassium and lycopene. Potassium is reported to balance muscle contractions, fluids, and nerve signals, as well as helping to prevent osteoporosis and kidney stones. Reduced blood pressure and chance of stroke are other possible benefits of a diet high in potassium. Lycopene may reduce the risk of stomach and colon cancers, as well help prevent or delay macular degeneration.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eIt's Easy:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany home gardeners don't plant varieties like Aunt Ruby's Green German tomato seeds because they think green tomatoes are hard to harvest because of difficulty telling when the fruit is ripe. But here it's easy - they are ripe when the light green tomatoes show a hint of yellow and a light pink blush underneath. Too much pink blush and they've overripened.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAunt Ruby's Green German Seeds Per Package:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 gram - Approximately 250-275 Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 oz -
