Bronze Torch, an F1 hybrid grape tomato, is a fruit vegetable. The plant sets small "perfect" flowers followed by large oblong fruits weighing about 1-ounce, measuring 1¼ inches wide and 2½ inches long. Beautiful inside and out, the brick red grape tomatoes have bronze striping and a dark red interior, making a beautiful plate presentation. Bronze Torch tomatoes have exceptional flavor, texture, and sweetness. And with an average Brix score of 8.0 (higher the Brix score, the sweeter the tomato), they are great for snacking. Tomatoes are considered a superfood for their nutrient rich content, having a high (top 20) Aggregate Nutrient Density Index score (ANDI), or micronutrient-per-calorie density. Tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and provide vitamin A and potassium. They also contain carotenoid lycopene and beta-carotene as well as phenolic acids and flavonoids.

Usually grown as an annual, Bronze Torch, an herbaceous tender perennial, is a member of the nightshade family (Solanaceae), which contains plants that typically grow in temperate to tropical regions. A prolific indeterminate variety, often called a "vining" tomato, Bronze Torch requires staking or caging for support. Blossoms and fruit continue to develop as the vine grows, so, it bears an impressive amount of fruit over the course of a season. This variety is a good option for a farmers market crop.

Bronze Torch grows best in full sun and in moist, humusy, deep, fertile loams with a preferred pH of 6.0 to 6.8. It has high tolerance to a wide range of environmental stresses, including both biotic stress, such as diseases and pests, and abiotic stress, like drought and temperature extremes.

A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, tomato seeds should be direct sown into warm spring soil after all threat of frost has passed. Seeds can also be started indoors about 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Flowers begin to set fruit with night temperatures between 55 and 75°F. Protect plants with row covers if temperatures are expected to dip below 50°F. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
