VF1 & 2 Determinate. For decades we have been looking for an extremely early tomato that sets fruit in cool weather and also tastes good. Polbig may be the one. The compact plants produce round smooth fruit that have an excellent dark red color inside and out. Small but hardly tiny, Polbig tomatoes run between 3 1/2 and 6 ounces. Flavor is similar to good mid-season tomatoes, sweet and just a bit acidic. 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.
