Tomato, 'Manyel'


Manyel is not a new one to us but proved to be a real standout in our 2018 field with enticing flavor and heavy production well into the rainy weather. We were continually surprised every time we picked a crate and tasted it anew. For some reason, we forgot how wonderful it is! A newer color in our mid-season slicer palate, Manyel delivers very attractive 8-10oz lemon yellow fruits borne on sturdy and compact vines. Low acid, typical of the yellows, and with an excellent, mildly sweet flavor, the fruits seem to have a bit of stuffing tomato in their lineage as they occasionally have a bit of a hollow cavity. A very attractive mid-season tomato. The name is said to mean “Many Moons”. Indeterminate.

Growing Info

SOWING:

Sow 4-7 weeks before your last frost date.

Transplant out after danger of frost (50+F nighttime temps).

Note: Don't start too early or plants will be leggy and root-bound! Tomatoes do well in clay to loam soils. 

PLANTING DEPTH:

1/8-1/4"

SPACING:

18" spacing in rows 5' apart.

EMERGENCE:

10-14 days @ soil temp 70-85F

LIGHT:

Full sun

FERTILITY:

Medium-Heavy. Prefers well-drained, well-balanced fertile soil with a pH between 6.0-7.5. Note that excess Nitrogen will encourage foliage, not fruit! Low calcium and irregular watering will result in blossom end rot.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Row cover may be used for extra warmth and possible earlier fruit set.

Irregular watering can result in blossom end rot.

Plant deeply to encourage healthy root structure.

Indeterminate varieties may benefit from pruning suckers to encourage air flow, plant health, and energy towards plant top and fruit.

Trellis! We really like the Florida weave.
