Product Description:

55 days. Space is not an issue for this little dynamo of a plant. At home, in even the tightest containers (as small as 8 inches), the most minimally sized garden can produce a delicious crop of fresh cherry tomatoes. The juicy, tasty, 1–1 ½ inch round, red fruit are set in clusters by the fistful. Super compact, potato-leaf, determinate plants top out at only 8–12 inches tall and begin producing their first harvests before nearly every other tomato variety.

Indoor Tower Garden -- perfection!

We grow all our greens indoors with my aeroponic Tower Garden under LED lights. These are the first fruiting plant I've had this much success with. They are amazing and thriving. Indoors, pollination is critical, but easy to do. Once flowers start to bloom, shake the stalks or gently rub fingers over the open flowers, moving across all flowers. Not sweet, but that's OK, they are still tasty and meaty. Perfect for salad or Caprese sticks with a mozzarella ball, basil leaf and some balsamic reduction drizzle. Mmmm!

Cute, but not tasty

The Red Robin tomato would be a great little plant to have in a pot on your patio. It's compact, prolific, and charming....growing like a little round bush. The taste, however, does not compare with the sweet home-grown tomato taste we have come to expect. It would probably be fine on a salad, though.

Great little producer

What a great little producer. I started it indoors and then grew two plants outside. One in a raised bed and one in a plastic container. Both produced very well which was very impressive considering the two significant heat waves we experienced in south eastern Washington this year. I will definitely include this in my tomato mix next year!

Tomatoes that grow outside in Alaska, yes please!

So, these actually produced fruit outside in my southern facing yard! This is a big deal for up here! I'm not sure if it's just because these are so dwarf, or maybe they must like cooler weather, but we had a more typical Alaskan summer, temps under 75 and good rain and although the 1 plant stayed very small, under 12" and didn't have many leaves, it put all its efforts into producing fruit. Not a lot, but they all turned red on the vine and I would just pick a few at a time during July mostly. It was planted out the beginning of June. Next year I'm going to do a whole row and see what happens!

Lycopersicon lycopersicum The first ripe, juicy tomato of summer is a delicious milestone of the season for gardeners. Each year we test and evaluate more than 250 tomato varieties to bring you the most flavorful, best performing selections, for every desired use.

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
