Glacier Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Glacier Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Chill-Resilient Wonder

The Glacier Tomato, an early-maturing cultivar, originated in Alaska, developed by plant breeder Tim Peters. Recognized for its ability to thrive in cooler climates and shorter growing seasons, it has gained popularity among gardeners seeking a reliable and flavorful early-season tomato.

Within the Glacier Tomato family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this variety is appreciated for its determinate growth habit. The plant typically grows compactly, reaching about 18 to 24 inches in height, making it suitable for containers or smaller garden spaces. It features clusters of small to medium-sized, round fruits with a bright red color and a smooth, glossy appearance.

Taste-wise, the Glacier Tomato offers a balanced and mildly sweet flavor with a hint of acidity. Its firm texture and juicy flesh make it suitable for fresh eating in salads, slicing for sandwiches, or incorporating into culinary dishes.

When planting from seed, Glacier Tomatoes thrive in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. Start seeds indoors approximately 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, ensuring warmth and adequate light for healthy seedling development. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after the soil has warmed and there is no risk of frost.

These tomatoes prefer full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season. While they can tolerate cooler temperatures better than many other varieties, protecting them from extreme cold and providing mulch around the base of the plants can help maintain soil warmth and moisture.

The Glacier Tomato's early maturity, compact growth, and delightful taste make it an appealing choice for gardeners in regions with shorter growing seasons, enabling them to enjoy homegrown tomatoes earlier in the year.

Planting & Care

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.
