More information about growing tomatoes
Tomatoes come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, but all tomato plants need quality soil to produce. Nature Meal for Tomatoes improves microbial activity, aiding in soil aerification, which provides tomato plants with a solid foundation from which to grow. For increased yields combine Nature Meal for Tomatoes with Nitron's Formula A-35 and Nitron's Tomato Booster.
Many environmental aspects can affect your garden. Selecting the right location where tomatoes can ripen without the use of artificial ripening chemicals will maintain the full-flavor of a robust natural tomato. Water your plants in the morning, so the plants have time to dry before being exposed to the cool night air.
Tomatoes favor moderate temperatures but love warm soil. Use natural fertilizers, like Nature Meal for Tomatoes, and mulch to keep the soil warm. If air temperatures rise above 85 degrees Fahrenheit, consider picking green tomatoes early as they can be used in salsa, breaded and fried, or pickled.
Consider pruning “suckers,” or stems that will not produce fruit, so that your efforts are multiplied. Keep a close eye on the tomatoes; picking before they over-ripen ensures the quality of the flavor and texture of your tomato!

Common and less common uses of tomatoes
Tomatoes contain an acidic property that can be used to bring out other flavors in certain dishes. Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes frequently call for tomatoes, using their unique taste to create a mouth-watering combination that entices the senses. Tomatoes are also found in Italian dishes in the form of sauce or paste. Tomato juice is popular among health conscious consumers.
Nutritionists recommend tomatoes as part of a heart-healthy diet. Tomatoes contain natural antioxidants such as Lycopene, which is thought to help prevent certain cancers. Organic tomatoes sidestep the tell-tale metallic taste of mass produced, chemically-treated tomatoes and also expose the consumer to less potential threats found in pesticides. Products like Nature Meal for Tomatoes and Tomato Booster allow even the novice home gardener to experience the benefits of an all-natural tomato!
Whether in the hand or on the fork, tomatoes are present often in our lives. For your backyard barbecue hamburgers or the ketchup for your fries, tomatoes add the flavor we crave and the nutrients we need. Using organic products keeps the quality Mother Nature intended and we enjoy with tomatoes.
