Dona (Hybrid)

This early-producing French hybrid is delicious — not too sweet or tart. Large plants are disease resistant (VFFNT) and produce heavy yields of medium-size, slightly-flattened round tomatoes, each weighing about 6 oz. Dona is perfect for slicing. Indeterminate.

Suggestions: For easier harvesting, support plants with stakes or cages. Start seeds indoors six to eight weeks before planting outdoors. Harden off seedlings by putting them outside during the day for 1 week before transplanting. Transplant seedlings to the garden when nighttime temperatures remain above 55 degrees Farenheit. Enrich the soil before planting. Use landscape fabric to retain heat in the soil. To avoid diseases, don't plant where tomatoes or peppers have grown in the last two years. Water regularly to keep soil evenly moist.
