'Big Rainbow' tomatoes are a colorful heirloom tomato that comes from Minnesota. These plants are indeterminate and will have many main stems.
Pruning the suckers (shoots between main stem and branches) will improve production and strength of the plant.
The fruit is typically mottled orange and red but other colors are often seen.
As with the Abe Lincoln
, these were planted ina burpee seed starting kit on April 6th with seedlings showing
on April 11th.
By the 21st, the Big Rainbow only had two sprouts out of three seeds but were by far the healthiest two sprouts of the tomatoes.
The strongest sprout was moved to a temporary container for hardening off.
On the 23, the final move for the sprout was made into the planter. The other seedling was moved into a temporary container for hardening off
and possible planting later.
It will be a little crowded in the planter with 3 other indeterminate plants but
active pruning and vine management will help. In the planter will be 3 Flashy Trout
a Abe Lincoln
tomato plant and a Yellow Pear
