SUB ARCTIC PLENTY TOMATO (62 days)

SKU:

Determinate. The story on this extra early tomato is that it was developed in the 1940's to be grown by US Air Force troops stationed in Greenland. It is extremely hardy and tolerates very cool conditions but plants cannot be allowed to freeze. A heavy yielder of 2 oz, round, red tomatoes in clusters. The plants may be placed close together and don't require staking. 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
