Hybrid 'Carmello' bears large crops of round, red, crack-resistant fruits with a high weight-to-size ratio. It's a winner on all counts: taste, productivity, and stamina. The exceptionally fine flavor is the pure essence of Tomato, a perfect balance of sweet and acid. The plants are widely adapted and disease resistant, too. Indeterminate. Fruits ripen about 70 days from transplant.
Grafted Tomatoes should be planted at soil level so that the graft line, indicated by green tie tape, remains above ground.
The practice of grafting, used in orchards and vineyards for thousands of years, creates the best of two worlds: a vigorous rootstock is fused to the top part of another plant valued for its fruit or flowers. By marrying a vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock to flavorful varieties, this ancient horticultural technique makes heirloom Tomatoes both more productive and more resistant to soil-borne diseases and pests, such as nematodes.
