When most people think of the quintessential image of a tomato, Wisconsin 55 comes to mind. Refreshing taste of summer in a gorgeous, scarlet-red, round, mid-size slicing tomato. Juicy but never mushy, the Wisconsin 55 is great for salads and sandwiches. Impressively vigorous, blemish-free, crack-resistant, uniform, high-yielding and stores well. Good disease resistance to early blight, and keeps producing until frost. Bred in 1947 for disease and crack resistance in the humid upper Midwest. If you have trouble growing tomatoes, try Wisconsin 55!
Start indoors about 1/4” deep 5-6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant well after danger of frost and ideally when night temps don’t go lower than 50F. Sow plants 24-36” apart. Plant in full sun and will need to stake or trellis plants. Fertilize with fish emulsion, compost, manure or a soluble, complete fertilizer.
