About Tomato Pusa Ruby

The most popular garden vegetable crop, tomatoes come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and colors. Choose determinate varieties for early harvest or cool conditions. Compact varieties are also good choices for containers and planting in flower beds. Tomatoes are an incredibly versatile food.

They are often considered as a vegetable, though ideally they are a citrus fruit. They are a rich source of Vitamin C and help in increasing your immunity. Not just this, tomatoes also provide several other vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus and copper, all of which are necessary for good health.

The best part is that they can be eaten either raw, in salads, sandwiches or in vegetables.

Planting and care

  • Water generously for the first few days
  • Water well throughout growing season, about 2 inches per week during the summer
  • Keep watering consistent! Mulch five weeks after transplanting to retain moisture
  • To help tomatoes through periods of drought, find some flat rocks and place one next to each plant
  • The rocks pull up water from under the ground and keep it from evaporating into the atmosphere
  • Fertilize two weeks prior to first picking and again two weeks after first picking
  • If using stakes, prune plants by pinching off suckers so that only a couple stems are growing per stake
  • Practice crop rotation from year to year to prevent diseases that may have over wintered

  • The fruit is borne on spurs, which develop directly from the stem
  • Tomatoes should not be planted outdoors until day and night temperatures are about 55 degrees
  • Low temperatures (below 55 degrees) prevent fruit set
  • Soil temperatures should be at least 55-60 F to transplant
  • Otherwise plants may turn yellow, become stunted and slow to bear
  • Seed should be started indoors 6-8 weeks before plants are set out, or use transplants, which are widely available
