Tomato, 'Moldovan Green'


It’s high time we added more green tomatoes to our mix! Moldovan Green is not just a terrific green tomato but a wonderful tomato all around. In fact, when it came to fresh slice-salt-and-eat, straight off the vine, tomato-ing, just about everyone who visited us at the farm agrees: Moldovan is among the cream of the crop (yes, that’s right-we just used “tomato” as a verb). The indeterminate sturdy vines are loaded with 8-12 oz beefsteak type fruits that ripen perfectly in our climate, (remember our tomatoes are field-grown) and are wonderful slicers. Moldovan has a lovely lime green/golden blushed skin coloring and glowing green flesh with a taste that is very bright, mildly fruity, mild acid and very rich. As I edit this in mid-December when I can only dream of crates upon crates of tomatoes, the only thing left to say is, Grow Them! You will be happy you did. Promise.

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.
