TM838A - Tasti-Lee Coated
Tasti-Lee tomato seeds are the result of years of exhaustive conventional plant breeding. This is a fantastic hybrid with three prized features. First, the flavour is sensational, balancing perfectly sweetness and acidity. Second, they contain up to 50% more of the antioxidant lycopene than most other tomatoes. Finally, they remain in very good eating condition for weeks after harvesting, giving them a longer shelf life than the rest. The plump round fruits are bright red inside and out, appearing on compact bush plants that have a very concentrated set around 75 days after transplant. Tasti-Lee is resistant to Fusarium races 1-3, and Verticillium.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
Summer-ripened tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. The lycopene in the tomatoes is an anti-oxidant, but is only released when the tomatoes are cooked. They also contain compounds that block cancer-causing nitrosamines. We use the convention of Bush to mean determinate (fruit set more or less all at once on short plants). Vine means indeterminate (fruit sets over a longer time on tall-growing plants). Follow along with this handy How to Grow Tomatoes Guide and grow food.!
