Sun Dipper Tomato (F1 Hybrid 65 Days)
The Sun Dipper Tomato is the snacking tomato you never knew you needed. While traditional cherry tomatoes taste great on veggie platters and in dips, there’s often the awkward experience of dropping your tomato into the dip or getting dip on your fingers. The 2-3” elongated hourglass shape of the Sun Dipper Tomato eliminates this struggle, making it easy to grip with your fingers and ideal for dipping. The flavor is perfectly balanced, with the ideal amount of acid and sweetness. Resistance to Fusarium, Nematodes and Tobacco Mosaic Virus.
Germination: 7-14 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep
Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before the last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling, or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of the suggested measurement. Transplant out after the last frost. Space 24-36" apart
Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after the last frost.
Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.
Tips: The Sun Dipper Tomato needs fertile well-drained soil, amended with compost and/or add organic fertilizer. Keep well watered for optimum growth. Mulching retains moisture and helps with disease. Planting seedlings deeper than they were growing in their pots helps make a stronger roots system. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
