TUMBLING TOM RED TOMATO (75 days)

3

This cascading, branching tomato provides an interesting display in pots and hanging baskets. The vigorous plants continue to add additional vines that can grow to 2' so it will just pour out of any container. Yields are remarkably early and heavy and the flavor is the delightful sweet fresh taste that you expect from a cherry tomato. If you keep them picked they will produce all summer. 10 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.

Tumbling Tom Tomatoes

I have been using Tumbling Tom Tomatoes for approximately 10 years. I start them in the house and transplant them to 16" hanging baskets before I put them out. I put 2 or 3 other plants with them depending on the size of the other plants. I have combined them with dwarf broccoli, peppers, hollyhocks, moss roses and nasturtiums, sunflowers and untold other vegetables and flowers. I put a 12-19" stake in the middle of the container to support the tomato plants and it seems to help. One year I counted 70 tomatoes on one side of the container and figured I had 140 fruit on that plant. I eat the tomatoes off the plant. The skin is a little tough and if I do decide to harvest them I freeze them in quart containers for soup and remove the skins or cut them in half before using them. The tomatoes stay on the vines for a long time, and I have some on there now in January. The vines tend to die off in late summer. We had one plant in a basket outside our kitchen window and one day my wife and I watched a squirrel in the basket picking off the fruits and burying them right in the basket. I also have a garden program at the local senior center and we have some pictures on our Facebook page.
