Lucid Gem Tomato Seeds (10-15 in quantity)

Bred by Brad Gates at Wild Boar Farms

100-250g fruit, beefsteaks. This is a red/yellow interior sister of Blue Beauty. Firstly they ripen yellow, then more of an orange when very ripe. Very attractive with the black anthocyanin splashes to the shoulders really contrasting with the lighter coloured skin. Good to very good production. Mid-mid/late. Flavour is very good, much like a good bicolour. Very sweet tasting with fruity tones. Very meaty flesh with very few Seeds. One of the best varieties for heat tolerance with good cracking resistance. Very good ability to stay ripe on the vine and stay edible. (sometimes getting better) Excellent post-harvest storage ability. This is an amazing variety. Like all anthocyanin tomatoes, the more direct, unobscured light received, the darker the shoulder splashes.

Sow the tomato seeds thinly into a seed tray or in small pots or cells of damp compost, cover with a light sprinkling of vermiculite or compost (maximum 1-2mm only) and mist them very lightly using a spray, place at a temperature of 20-25 Celsius. For better results, start these seeds in a heated seed propagator. Don’t allow to dry out whilst waiting for germination, misting with a spray only. Damp not wet! Germination will occur in 5-20 days, depending on the growing conditions and the available moisture and temperatures to sprout successfully.
As soon as seedlings have 2 pairs of true leaves, prick out and transplant the seedlings into individual small pots, later on they will require repotting again.
Plant the tomato plants outside mid-May-June (taking note of when there is no risk of frost in your specific area)

These are amateur, open pollinated seeds, harvested from plants grown this year in my own garden. They have been grown without use of pesticide and have not been genetically modified in any way. They can be grown both outdoors and undercover. However, be mindful that anthocyanin varieties develop darker colouration based on the level of direct, unobscured light received and therefore perform better outdoors.

A really good seller! Arrived quickly despite the strikes. I can tell they’ve been harvested and packaged with care, extremely healthy seeds. I grow for my local community and teach green skills, so I’m very excited and looking forward to showing these off and growing them too. Thank you

Purchased Black Beauty seeds earlier in the year and they have been fab. Looking forward to growing these for next year.
