Looking for an heirloom tomato that does well in cooler climates? Meet the Black Prince Tomato! This unique variety is believed to have been developed in the middle of the 20th century in Irkutsk, Siberia. It's perfect for growing in cooler regions, and is even reputed to be a "true Siberian tomato". The Black Prince features smooth, delicate skin with a glossy finish and beautiful variegated hues of dark red, brown, and green. It's also very aromatic, with a semi-sweet and fruity flavor that's relatively low in acidity. If you're looking for a unique and flavorful heirloom tomato, the Black Prince is definitely worth a try!

Start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before last frost. Provide plants with plenty of light to avoid tall, spindly tomato transplants. A sunny south-facing window or grow lights will be sufficient. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring; usually about 2 weeks after the your average last frost date. Set transplants in the ground and cover stem so that only 2-3 sets true leaves are exposed, resulting in a stronger root system.
