What’s red and yellow-striped on the outside, and is dense, juicy-sweet on the inside? It’s an heirloom tomato variety called Striped German. Or how about “it’s like eating candy right off the vine?” Two cherry varieties known for that description are Matt’s Wild and Peacevine.
Discover exciting colors, shapes and tastes in your own garden this year by planting heirlooms! Be on the lookout June 1st for a new shipment of flower, herb and veggie bedding plants arriving on Tuesday, June 1st from Gardens of Eagan. Plants will be available in the produce department throughout the planting season.
Here’s a great tomato planting tip:
Remove plant from pot, pinch off leaves half way up the stem, place the plant sideways into a “trench” (instead of a hole) and carefully bend the top of the plant upward before covering with dirt. The buried stem will produce roots resulting in a stronger, healthier and higher-yeilding tomato plant!
