CLUSTER GRANDE TOMATO (F1 hybrid 63 days)

F1 & 2T Indeterminate. You've probably noticed the cluster tomatoes, sold 5 or 6 on a vine in the supermarkets. Most of these are imports. A prominent US Grower has bred an alternative with an American twist. About an ounce bigger than the supermarket type, the clusters ripen uniformly to an intense red color. The flavor is good and yields of this very early variety are high. 15 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.
