Nile River Egyptian Tomato

Seed folklore has it this variety dates back centuries to ancient times. The fruit are red. There is lots of variety in shape, from small medium to large, with some round and some typical of heirloom shaped tomatoes. 

Taste: a balance of acid and sweet. 

Tomatoes are naturally quite drought tolerant, and yields are better when grown in the ground because their root systems are adventurous and incredibly resilient.

minimum 25 seeds per pack.

Seed starting:

In our climate tomatoes like a head start - start seeds 6-8 weeks before the last frost (depending on your region). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep, keeping the soil warm and moist. Once the first true leaves appear, plant up into plug trays. Plant outside in full sun once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Mulch with straw or other organic matter! 

Tomatoes will do well staked.  

Companion plants: basil, nasturtium, carrots, calendula.
