History:
The Porter Heirloom Tomato has a storied history, dating back to the late 1800s in Indiana, USA. Named after a prominent tomato breeder, Porter W. Briggs, this variety has been cherished for generations for its exceptional taste and versatility in the kitchen. Originally bred for its ability to withstand hot, humid climates, the Porter Heirloom Tomato has become a beloved favorite among gardeners and chefs alike for its rich flavor and reliable performance.

Culinary Uses:
Porter Heirloom Tomatoes are renowned for their robust, old-fashioned tomato flavor. Their firm texture and meaty flesh make them ideal for slicing and adding to sandwiches or salads. They also hold up well when cooked, making them perfect for canning, sauces, and salsas. Whether enjoyed fresh off the vine or incorporated into various dishes, the Porter Heirloom Tomato offers a delicious taste of tradition.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, Porter Heirloom Tomatoes will continue to produce fruit throughout the growing season. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil to thrive. Start seeds indoors approximately 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, then transplant seedlings outdoors once the soil has warmed and all danger of frost has passed. Space plants about 18-24 inches apart to allow for adequate airflow and room for growth. Provide support for the plants with stakes or cages to prevent the heavy fruit-laden branches from bending or breaking. Regular watering and fertilizing will help ensure a plentiful harvest of these classic, flavorful tomatoes.
