Description

Tomato - Silvery Fir Tree - Lycopersicum esculentum

Tender Annual Determinate. Heirloom. Think red ornaments hanging from a fir tree and you'll understand how this 2" Russian tomato got its name. The tomato ornaments put on a show when they all ripen at once. Early ripening works with short growing seasons or impatient canners.

Did You Know? The dwarf plant size is ideal for containers, hanging baskets, and small gardens.

Soil and Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

Planting and Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.

Germination: 6-12 Days
Height At Maturity: 3'-5'
