Tomato plants should be grown in a warm areas and receive plenty of sunlight,
so choose a sunny spot in your garden. Relocate your tomato plants in
different parts of your garden each year to avoid diseases. Optimum
temperatures for growing tomatoes are between 65 and 85 degrees F. Plant your
seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before setting outside. Use Miracle Gro Seed
Starting Material for best germination results. We have tested other Seed
Starting Mix and experienced poor germination rates. You may have to special
order the Miracle Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix from your nursery, as it is
hard to find it at many of the large home and garden centers. Do not add any
soil, fertilizers, and other chemicals to seed starting material! Do not use
jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too
wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low
germination when using these types of products. When seedlings are 4" tall,
transplant them in larger pots. Plants should be at least 10" tall before
transplanting outdoors. Place plants outdoors in shady area several days
before transplanting outdoors. Shelter the transplants to prevent sunburn,
wilting, and rain damage. Spring planting should occur when soil is warm, at
least 3 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 degrees
F. You can plant early if you use water towers. To prevent branches from
breaking from the weight of tomatoes, use 5 to 6 ft tall cages. To tie plants
to stakes, use soft strips of cloth. Check indeterminate plants regularly, and
pinch off suckers and side branches where leaves join the stems. Plants can grow
1 to 6 ft tall.
Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply mulch and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant. Work the soil thoroughly before planting. Add
well-rotted manure and compost.
Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water
in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest tomatoes when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so
you don't damage the plant. Pick them as they mature to encourage new
fruit to form. Remove any decayed tomatoes from the plant.

Best tomato I have ever grown.
Heavy producer of perfect no stem cracking tomatoes. Low acid great old fashioned tomato taste. I have tried em all over the past 40 years and this is the best so far.

I have grown pink varieties of tomatos for years. Last year was my first for the Pink Girl. I consider it among the top two pink tomatos in existance that I have tasted, with the Husky Pink being the other one.
So you could imagain that I thought that the Pink tomato as the best tomato in the world. I believed that until this year. That was when I grew the Cherokee Purple. Now some may have heard of this Heirloom before and thought those people must be crazy. That was what I thought until I tasted my first Cherokee Purple. It is unbelieveable. So now all I grow is the Pink GIrl and the Cherokee Purple as the Husky pink is getting too hard to find for me.

This is my 5th year growing the Pink Girl Tomato. This tomato is my all around favorite. It has lower acid than red tomatoes. It has very good yields of beautiful tomatoes. I rate this variety the best out of the 50 varieties that I have grown.

Great flavor, and good production. The low acid and slightly adds a lot to sauces when you use one.
