Product Details

The Harvard Square Tomato is a unique and visually striking variety of tomato, renowned for its remarkable skin that exhibits a blend of multiple colors. This distinctive feature makes it a favorite among gardeners and culinary enthusiasts. The skin of the Harvard Square Tomato transitions through a spectrum of colors as it ripens, starting from a deep green at its early stages, gradually turning to a vibrant yellow, and finally maturing into a rich red with hints of orange and purple. This kaleidoscopic appearance is not just aesthetic but also indicates the stages of ripeness, adding to its appeal.

Caring for the Harvard Square Tomato plant requires attention to a few key aspects to ensure its healthy growth and fruitful yield. It thrives best in well-drained, fertile soil and needs a sunny location to develop its full color spectrum. Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry periods, but overwatering should be avoided to prevent root rot. The plant benefits from staking or caging to support its growth, as the fruits can be quite heavy. Additionally, periodic application of a balanced fertilizer helps in maintaining robust health. Protection from pests and diseases is also essential, as with most tomato varieties.
