Non-GMO Old German Heirloom Tomato Seeds from True Leaf Market are a staff favorite. The Old German tomato variety is a heritage tomato that hails from the Mennonite community and is beloved for its enormous 1- to 2-lb. oblate, beefsteak-type fruit that is meaty with excellent flavor. The fruit is golden-yellow with red stripes on the outside and is marbled on the inside, which gives it a beautiful appearance when sliced up and served fresh on sandwiches and burgers. These premium-quality heirloom tomato seeds come from Mountain Valley Seed Co., a small, independent, and family-operated seed company. 75 days to maturity after transplanting.


Growing Old German Tomato Vegetable Garden Seeds

Heirloom, Non-GMO Old German Tomato Seed Growth Habits:

Old German tomato seeds produce indeterminate vines that continue to grow throughout the season, often reaching up to 10' tall. That's why it's best to stake or use a tomato cage with Old German tomato plants. Staking or caging will help support the vines that have to hold up the heavy fruit and provide good airflow to keep the Old German tomato plant healthy.

Because tomato plants are native to the tropical regions of the Americas, frost easily kills tomato plants. Start Old German tomato seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks prior to your last frost date, then harden off the tomato seedlings and transfer them into your garden after the threat of frost has passed.

If you give Old German tomato plants plenty of sun and consistent watering, they will produce very large, meaty fruit that often weighs over 1 lb.

Tomatoes prefer slightly acidic to neutral soil that is rich with nutrients. Be sure to transplant the Old German tomato seedlings into a location that drains well. Tomatoes love consistently moist soil, but soggy soil can lead to disease.

Various Uses for Old German Heirloom Tomatoes:

Old German tomatoes are a striking heirloom tomato thanks to their bicolor appearance with golden-yellow and red hues. The Old German striped tomato variety is an excellent slicer because of its size and sweet, juicy flavor.

Heirloom Old German Tomato Benefits:

Heirloom Old German tomatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including vitamins C, A, and K, potassium, and lycopene. For most people, tomatoes are part of a healthy diet.

Additional Information:

Old German heirloom tomatoes come from the Mennonite farming community in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and have been traced back to the mid-1800s.
