Maturity: 80 days
Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date in soilless starter mix. Sow seeds ¼” deep and keep moist and between 75-85 degrees until germination in 7-14 days. Cold temperatures slow down germination significantly. Transplant to 4” pot when two sets of true leaves show and plant is safe to work with. If weather is still cool and plant is getting leggy bump up to 1 gallon so tomato doesn’t become root bound. When weather is warm and frost date has passed, plant in full sun rich well-draining soil location. Space determinate varieties 1-2’ apart, indeterminate staked 2-3’ apart and indeterminate unstaked 3-4’ apart. Keep soil evenly moist throughout season but excess water causes cracking. Tomatoes prefer high nitrogen fertilizer when young and high phosphorus when setting fruit.
