Indeterminate. Avg. Packet: 40 seeds.
SCIENTIFIC NAME:Solanum lycopersicum
DETERMINATE (Bush):Varieties do not need pruning and may be grown with or without support; fruit ripens within a concentrated time period.
INDETERMINATE (Climbing):Varieties should be staked, trellised, or caged, and pruned for best results; fruit ripens over an extended period.
SEEDING: Sow 1/4" deep in flats, using a soilless mix (not potting soil). Water only enough to keep the mix from drying. When first true leaves develop, transplant into plug trays or 3-4" pots to produce large, stocky 7-8 week transplants. Fertilize with fish emulsion or a soluble, complete fertilizer.
TRANSPLANTING: Transplant into medium-rich garden or field soil 12-24" apart for determinate varieties, 24-36" apart for indeterminate, unstaked varieties, and 14-20" for staking. Plant 3-8" inches deep, covering the root ball well and up to the cotyledons (first leaves).
