(Lycopersicon lycopersicum) 45-49 days This open-pollinated version of the Tumbler Cherry Tomato is very hard to find. A perfect variety for hanging baskets and containers! The Tumbler Cherry Tomato has a graceful, cascading habit. Determinate plants produce large yields of bright red 1 1/4″ cherry tomatoes. An extra-early variety that is very sweet and tasty. Excellent for container gardening, but, does well in the garden, too.
Planting Instructions for Tumbler Cherry Tomato Seeds
Start Tumbler Cherry Tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Plant the Tomato seeds ¼” deep in sterile seed starting mix. Germination occurs in 6-14 days in soil 70-90°F. Once true leaves develop, separate Heirloom / Open Pollinated Tomato plants into 3-4″ pots, placing in full light & cooler temps (60-70°F). Set out hardened off Tomato transplants, in full sun, once soil has warmed, 18-30″ apart, in rows 3-4′ apart. Plant tall, spindly Tomato seedlings deeper, the stems will sprout roots and support and strengthen the plant. To help prevent blossom end rot, put 1 Tbs of lime, ground oyster shells, or crushed eggshells at the bottom of your planting hole. The calcium will help build strong cell walls once your heirloom tomatoes plants start producing fruit. For strong tomato plants, add 1 Tbs of aged compost and 1 Tbs of bone meal to the bottom of the hole as well.
