Tomato B.
One of the First to Produce Every Year

Always the first to produce and the first to ripen Lizzano is one of my favorites. From each plant, you get dozens of 3/4 inch cherry tomatoes that have nice tomato flavor and aromas, good chewy texture and are sweet-tart. It’s June 1 this year and I have already picked a half dozen ripe tomatoes (planted in early April). The plants work well in large/wide pots and typically grow wide instead of tall, definitely a “bush” style. The branches are very thin and need supports typically 3-4 ft long. Lizzano produces all summer long and stops usually around the end of August (mid-east coast USA). The picture is from mid-May this year.

Such a sweet treat

These have been my favorite for a few years now. I love them. My friends and neighbors love them, since they produce enough to share.

Transplant failed

Dissappointing. Transplant failed in just 3 days. Planted in greenhouse, Burbank slicer doing well.

Holy CRAP these lil guys just did not stop!

Not as tasty as the much more crazily sprawling Sweet 100s (to be fair, indeterminate) but that bar is high. But... I grew these lil powerhouse plants in ~2'x2x'x2' containers and (foolishly?) put them everywhere I had an extra cube available at the time the starts were ready to go out. I filled 2/3 of a 5 cubic foot freezer with them, and could have kept going but had no more room by the time I pulled the plants. Next year I'm planning on planting maybe 2 or 3 of them, TOPS. Great little plants if you want a TON of fruits, especially if you don't have a ton of room. 8B, Seattle, started them fairly early indoors.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
Common diseases: Early and late blight
Disease prevention: A strict 3-4 year rotation, remove vines at the end of the year, fungicide
