You can't help but think of Harris Seeds when you think of Jetstar. And we are greatful for the Harris company for agreeing to sell us this variety. Jetstar is fairly compact, producing lots of attractive, red, globe shaped, full size but not huge, crack free, delicious tomatoes. This is a low acid tomato so canners may wish to add some lemon juice. 15 seeds.
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.
