|I planted some old Burpee's Brandywine Pink tomatoe seed this year. They germinated fine and the bushes are growing fine in the garden but they are not producing any tomatoes.|
Is there a problem with yield when using old tomatoe seed?
|The only problem associated with using old seeds is that they often fail to germinate. Since your seeds produced seedlings, they were obviously viable. Brandywine is an old-fashioned variety and one that's very reliable. If it has not yet bloomed, give it a few more weeks of warm weather and it surely will. Tomatoes are native to the tropics and grow as perennials there; that's why they perform best when both day and night temperatures are warm. Be a little more patient with your plants - they're sure to provide a bountiful harvest.|
