 Open-pollinated.  Most people wait too long to harvest their heirloom tomatoes. Krims should be harvested when half green and still firm. They are ripe and perfectly delicious at that stage, any later and they'll fall apart before you get them to the table. Krims are strikingly purple on the outside with dark green-black shoulders. Interiors are part black, too, with an unusual juicy yet meaty taste and texture, that is surprisingly sweet.

Tomatoes are the royalty of the garden and the kitchen. They're the country's most popular garden vegetable by a mile. Follow these simple planting rules to grow delicious homegrown tomatoes:

  1. Be sure you have a place where they can get enough light. Even a sunny, south-facing window is barely adequate. Consider using a grow light to supplement sunlight.
  2. Don’t start plants too early. Sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting outside. Plant them 1/8 inch deep in sterile seed starting mix in flats or cells. Seeds germinate best at 75 F to 90 F. Then grow transplants at about 70 F.

  3. Don’t rush to transplant, as cold soil and air temperatures can stress plants. Wait at least a week or two after the last frost. Nighttime temperatures should be consistently above 45 F.

  4. Harden off plants before transplanting by reducing water and fertilizer, not by exposing to cold temperatures, which can stress them and stunt growth. Transplants exposed to cold temperatures (60 F to 65 F day and 50 F to 60 F night) are more prone to catfacing.

  5. Unlike most plants, tomatoes do better if planted deeper than they were grown in containers. Set them in the ground so that the soil level is just below the lowest leaves. Roots will form along the buried stem, establishing a stronger root system.
