The term “vernissage” is when artwork is debuted for the first time. This tomato is no exception as it is a piece of art with is brilliant red-pink back ground and marked with multihued orange and gold striping. Not quite a cherry and not quite a saladette, fruits weigh in around 2 ounces. Firm flesh makes it perfect for salads, roasted, grilled on a kabob and much more. Great producer of mild tasting fruits. I’m tempted to pickle a jar or two as I don’t think the skins will split in the process.

How to germinate Pink Vernissage tomato seeds:
Sow 5 mm deep. Keep moist; plastic cover improves success. Opt. germination temp: 18-25 C. Days to germ: 5-10. All tomatoes drop their blooms when temperatures reach 85 F or greater, so make sure your tomatoes don’t get over heated. Blossom end rot is a nutritional disorder where a lack of calcium causes the fruit to rot from the blossom end so be sure you use something like rock phosphate (22% calcium) when amending your tomato beds/growing medium. Use mulch to retain moisture or prevent water from splashing up on your plants as tomatoes hate having their foliage wet…NEVER WATER FROM ABOVE…its like someone splashing a cold bucket of water on you!
