Candyland Tomato (55 Days)

$ 3.95 Sold Out

First currant type tomato to win an AAS award. One of our earliest maturing, indeterminate tomatoes. A very well-kept plant when compared to the sprawling growth habit of a traditional currant tomato. Each of the tiny ½ inch fruits has a bright burst of flavor with a slightly meaty texture. We counted up to 40 fruits on just one of the dozens of trusses. You’ll need this heavy producer to contend with how many petite treats you will want to consume.

10 seeds

Candyland Tomato (55 Days)


Solanum lycopersicum


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: 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.
