Amana Orange is one of tastiest and earliest of the heirloom beefsteaks in our trials. Deep orange color and big beefsteak flavor make this one of our all-time favorites! Start in warm location indoors six to eight weeks before transplanting. Harden off young plants In a protected outdoors location about ten days before transplanting. Plant outdoors in late spring after the nights have warmed. Tie the vines to a sturdy trellis as they begin to grow. Feed every two to three weeks with a high phosphorous fertilizer and water deeply for healthy roots.
