Huge heirloom beefsteak tomato named for the Amana Colonies in Iowa. These organic tomato seeds produce big, regular leaf plants that produce above average amounts of beautiful light-orange, irregular shaped (fluted) heirloom tomatoes that can grow to 2 pounds or more, with an average diameter of 5 inches. Excellent sweet, almost tropical fruit flavors. This tomato variety has been included in my tomato garden for more than 20 years. A winner!
Start seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last spring frost, and transplant in late spring after night have warmed. Sow outdoors in climates with 120 or more frost-free days. Germinate best at 75℉. Plant in sunny spot. Feed every two weeks with high phosphorous fertilizer.
Ripen on the vine for best flavor. Vigorous 4-6' vines require tall, sturdy stakes or trellises.
