    How to Grow Ace 55 Tomatoes

    When to Plant Tomato Seeds

    You can start tomatoes indoors or go straight to your garden bed.

    If starting indoors, plant 4-6 weeks before the last killing frost. Transplanting is best done 1 to 2 weeks after the average date of the last frost for your region.

    If starting in your garden bed, wait 1-2 weeks after the last killing frost to plant.

    Where to Plant Tomato Seeds

    If planting directly in your garden, choose area that has plenty of light and well draining soil.

    How to Plant Tomato Seeds

    Planting in a growing tray for indoor start: Fill each spot with soil leaving a quarter inch at the top. Put 2-3 seeds per container then sprinkle soil on top. Keep soil moist but not soaked. Once plants start forming, more water can be applied. Keep in area that allows for plenty of sunlight and rotate regularly.

    Directly planting in garden: Plant in rows with 2-3 seeds per section with about 2' separation from next section. Add stakes as needed to keep plants upright.

    How to Harvest Tomatoes

    When the tomato is 1/2 green and 1/2 pink is when you can start harvesting your tomato. It will continue to ripen once picked. Keep in cool place to allow it to ripen without damaging the fruit or losing flavor or nutrients.

Acidity Needed for Canning

Info I have come across 2 decades ago for "Ace 55 VF," said that this was truly a very low acid variety, unlike other varieties that were only advertised as such. So Low, in fact, that vinegar, or other acidity, is necessary for canning. Otherwise, they have to be canned like green beans, or other non-acid foods. This is a much more stringent canning method than that necessary for normally acidic tomatoes. I don't remember the company that was selling the Ace 55 VF. But, I thought I should pass this information along.
