Tomato, Sweet Seedless Hybrid

Short Description

The world's first seedless tomato!

Full Description

We've come to appreciate seedless watermelons and virtually seedless cucumbers-now the world's first seedless tomato! Beyond the lack of seeds to digest, this tomato is first rate for taste-the perfect balance of flavor and sweetness, meat and gel, solid firmness and juiciness. And precisely because there are no seeds, all the sweetness goes into the fruit itself and is immediately available for you to enjoy in every rich slice. The indeterminate plants also have a full complement of disease resistance to ensure plenty of healthy yields.

How to Sow and Plant

  • Sow tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in spring using a seed starting kit
  • Sow seeds ¼  inch deep in seed-starting formula
  • Keep the soil moist at 75 degrees F
  • Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.
  • Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, feed when they are 3-4 weeks old using a starter solution (half strength of a complete indoor houseplant food) according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • If you are growing in small cells, you may need to transplant the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have at least 3 pairs of leaves before transplanting to the garden so they have enough room to develop strong roots
  • Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be “hardened off”. Accustom young plants to outdoor conditions by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Be sure to protect them from wind and hot sun at first. If frost threatens at night, cover or bring containers indoors, then take them out again in the morning. This hardening off process toughens the plant’s cell structure and reduces transplant shock and scalding.

Planting in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic soil. Make sure you did not grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or potatoes in the bed the previous year to avoid disease problems.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 8 inches. Level with a rake to remove clumps of grass and stones.
  • Tomatoes should be set 30-48 inches apart in a row with the rows spaced 3-4 feet apart. It can be tempting to space tomatoes more closely at planting time, but if you plant too closely you will increase the chance of disease, and decrease yields.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball. 
  • Carefully remove the plant from its pot and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root development. 
  • Tomatoes can be planted deeply, with the stem buried to the first set of leaves. The more deeply they are planted the more roots will form, providing the plant with additional support and better ability to take up nutrients. Some gardeners plant tomatoes by digging a horizontal trench and laying the plant in the trench with the top 2-4 inches of the plant pointing upward.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil to the top and press soil down firmly with your hand leaving a slight depression around the plant to hold water. 
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker. This is particularly important if you are trying different varieties. It is very difficult to tell which variety is which from the foliage.  
  • Water thoroughly, so that a puddle forms in the saucer you have created. This settles the plants in, drives out air pockets and results in good root-to-soil contact.
  • Place your plant support at this time. You can try tomato cages or staking. Unsupported plants will sprawl on the ground, require no pruning, and will probably produce a larger yield of smaller fruit than will staked plants. For larger, cleaner, more perfect fruits, support plants as they grow. Growing on stakes: Place strong stakes in the ground and set plants about 6 inches from the stakes. Growing in cages: Place a cage around a single plant; let the vines grow and enlarge within the cage, no pruning  will be necessary

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. 
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. This is especially important for tomatoes as their roots may be easily damaged when weeding, and this can lead to blossom end rot.
  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • If growing on stakes: As the plants grow, allow only one or two main stems to grow and pinch out any other side shoots as they form. Gently tie the one or two remaining shoots to the stake; don't pull them tightly against the stake. If growing in cages, no pruning is necessary.
  • Whether to remove the side shoots, or suckers, that grow out of the leaf axils or not depends on the support system used. Gardeners using stakes usually snap off these side shoots. They typically get earlier and larger tomatoes but overall production tends to be less. If tomatoes are grown in cages, the suckers are generally left on, although it's a good idea to pinch the tip out of them when they are 6-8 inches long. Regardless you may want to remove all the growth from the bottom 6-10 inches of the plant. This helps to improve air circulation and reduce the spread of diseases such as early blight. Wait until the plants are knee-high. In the morning when the plants have the most water in them, snap off the lower growth while it is small. Any plants that look sick with distorted foliage or have a mosaic pattern on the leaves should be removed as they may have a virus that can spread to the other plants. It is best to do this early in the season.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.

Harvesting and Preserving Tips

  • Determinate tomato plants ripen a heavy crop over a few weeks. Indeterminate varieties bear fruit continuously until frost. Remember that the days to harvest refers to the time from setting out transplants in the garden.
  • Pick tomatoes when they are as ripe as possible. They should be fully colored and firm and picked regularly to avoid overloading plants.
  • At the end of the season, when you know there will be a frost, pick all the almost-ripe tomatoes you can, and ripen them in brown bags or spread on newspapers at room temperature. Many cultivars will store for months. Store only sound fruit, at 50-60°F. Do NOT refrigerate and try to avoid having the fruit touch each other.
  • The foliage of tomatoes is toxic and should not be eaten.
  • Tomato fruits are enjoyed in many cooked dishes as a flavoring. Use them to make soups, sauces, stews, ketchup, paste, juice, quiche, and pies. Add them to curries, casseroles, and chutney.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great product I bought these earlier and I am very pleased with the tomato

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Flavor I bought these plants for my mom who has problems with seeds and her dentures. She loves the flavor of these tomatoes and they grow well on the sunny side of her house. They don't get all that large and with three plants she get just enough for herself with none to give away or process. This year, because of the weird weather I think, the skins are pretty tough but still the flavor is terrific. I would recommend these but not if you are looking for a big producer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seedless Solution! I was diagnosed with diverticulitis last year and thought I had to stop eating tomatoes because you have to avoid seeds to avoid colon surgery if you're not careful. I did not believe that a seedless tomato existed- but I googled it and Burpee Seed Company popped up. Then I told myself that even if I grew them, they probably would taste bland- not acidic. I was very wrong-they are delicious and I will always grow them. Thanks Burpee for giving me seedless tomatoes. Have you tried de-seeding tomatoes for a burger or sandwich? Let me know when seedless strawberries are developed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good -This will be a favorite around here. Very early fruit 55 days similar to early girl fruits but sweeter and seedless. We eat them as a treat alone and in salads and sandwiches
Date published: 2017-06-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor germination 22 of 31 seeds germinated. Over 98% of the rest of the seeds started in the 288 plug germinated. I have been germinating seeds at my nursery for over 25 years and this is the worse result I have had with new seed. I hope the claims about good flavor and being seedless provide a better result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real time saver!! My wife can not eat anything with seeds, but she loves tomatoes. So when we have tomatoes I scoop out all of the seeds from the slices that go on her sandwich. The Sweet Seedless Hybrid tomato is not big but there are absolutely no seeds. This is a real time-saver for me!! I grew them for the first time in 2016 & just placed my seed order for 2017.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness!!! I bought these tomatoes for my husband who can not have seeded tomatoes. We have grow them two years and this year has been amazing. I am still picking them in the middle of October. These have amazing flavor and we have used them in ever way. They will be in my garden every year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tomato I ordered 2 packages (10 seeds to a package). All 20 seeds came up and are now over 5 foot tall. They are still green and waiting on them to ripen. They are really healthy tomato plants. Can't wait to be able to eat one.
Date published: 2015-09-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Germination This tomato was a disappointment due to very poor germination. Out of the 10 seeds only 2 germinated (on a 70-80 degree seed starting mat). The taste however was decent although there were a few small seeds. This would be a good tomato for those that suffer with diverticulitus. If you are going to purchase this tomato, I would buy plants instead of seeds from Burpee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seeds for Seedless Tomato won't grow I've tried 2 years in a row now and can never get the Seedless Tomato seeds to grow. I've tried EVERYTHING. Maybe I got a couple of bad seed packets?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from surprisingly sweet First bite a surprise! Sweet and tangy. Tomatoes did have some seeds, though not a lot. No care in planting these: Dug a little hole in the grass and planted, using garden fabric and Burpee big tomato cages. Forgot to fertilize and left watering to mother nature. A bumper crop still yielding in October. Go figure. I also appreciated the easy access packaging. Beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful hardy tomatoes I love these tomatoes. Year after year we plant them and without fail, they are the ones that not only produce, but produce greatly from first fruit to frost. Then we pick all the green tomatoes right before and have tomatoes untill after Thanksgiving if we have a late freeze. One year we used a home remedy that nearly killed my three plants. Lost most of their leave and looked terrible. But I kept giving them water and they came back before the end of the season. Tomatoes were kind of small, but still good. Best tomatoes we have ever planted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tomatos, my hubby can eat. His favourite food is tomatoes. He too has Diveriticulitis, what a learning curve. We were able to eat anything we wanted but then whoa! I was just wandering around the greenhouse at the local building store, and there they were. I already had a few plants started in my little greenhouse, but I always felt guilty growing toms and he couldn't have any. So I moved the other plants over and bought a dozen. They produced great large fruit, that was juicy and plenty of them on each plant. Just want to say Thank You, he was in second heaven!! I will definitely be buying seed and then probably plants too! One Happy Wife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Seedless tomatoes!! My husband has suffered from diverticulitis for several years and the one thing he has missed out on the most is tomatoes. In particular fried green tomatoes. So when i saw that ordering seedless tomatoes was a possibility, I told him not to hold his breath but we would order some and see what we can come up with. he was delighted. We have enjoyed seedless tomatoes all summer and they are still producing!. We have had numerous tomato sandwiches ( a southern thing) and several meals of fried green tomatoes (also a southern thing). We will definitely order more plants next year! Thank you Burpee for making him so happy. It's the little things!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb tomato One of my best sellers at local farmers' markets. Good-sized, near-perfect fruit. I don't spray, yet plants are beautiful and highly productive with no foliage diseases. I was doubtful about this variety when I first grew it a couple years back. It won me over immediately. I now have customers who want no other. Those who cannot consume seeded tomatoes call me ahead of market times to ensure I set aside enough for them. They are grateful to the point of tears! I grow in minimally heated hoop houses, well ventilated. I start seedlings in January and graft on a vigorous, vegetative rootstock. When starting I carefully watch temperatures and get over 90 percent germination. I use organic fertilizers, mainly kelp, bone meal, fish meal, and langbeinite. Vines quickly reaches six feet, then heavy production continues on side shoots. Plants produce continuously from May to end of October for the final farmers' market.
