Tomato – Hybrids

March 8, 2014 @ 9:26 pm

Sunset has long been known for its GIANT tomato starts. Plant these in a sunny spot and support the vines as they grow. Feed at planting time with a tomato fertilizer, when the flowers begin to bloom, and again when the fruit sets. We offer both hybrid and heirloom types for a total of 20 varieties. Hybrids are listed below. Tip: If you are a beginner smaller paste or cherry type tomatoes are easier to grow.

Indeterminate vines will get tall so plan to stake them. Their fruit also develops progressively so you can harvest over several months. Determinate vines tend to be more compact but most will still need support.  Determinate vines won’t need pruning.  The fruit and blossoms develop on the vine at the same time. So, harvest time is short– around 10 days. The vines are popular with people who want to can or preserve their tomatoes in one go. Example: Making sauce or salsa.
