Espalda Verde is an indeterminate variety growing to about 200cm in height and spreads width-wise depending on how much of the suckers are pruned. Produces oblate large fruits with a full, sweet, slightly spicy tomato flavor. Fruits in size of small beefsteaks, up to 200grams each. Bright-red fruits with a green neck, as the name states in Spanish - "Green Neck". Thick-skinned, very meaty fruits with firm flesh. Crack-resistant. Keeps very well after harvest, up to 4 months. Not exactly a Longkeeper variety in the true sense but Espalda Verde has the most excellent characteristics for storage after harvest. Especially for a large-fruited variety. This is one of the very few beefsteaks that can be stored for a longer period of time. Best stored laying on trays, since the fruits are quite heavy. Origen: Sadurní Playà, Manresa, Spain. 80D. 10seeds/pack

Indeterminate tomato varieties will keep on growing the whole summer until the autumn frost. They will keep flowering and setting fruit. The sucker doesn't have to be pruned, but if not the plant will grow extremely large. 1-3 suckers could be spared along the main stem and the rest could be pruned. If not pruned at all the plant might tend to put energy into growing large instead of producing tomatoes on the main stem and the selected suckers. All indeterminate varieties could be staked or supported to avoid fruits laying on the ground.
