How to Sow and Plant

  • Sow tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in spring using a seed starting kit
  • Sow seeds ¼  inch deep in seed-starting formula
  • Keep the soil moist at 75 degrees F
  • Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.
  • Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, feed when they are 3-4 weeks old using a starter solution (half strength of a complete indoor houseplant food) according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • If you are growing in small cells, you may need to transplant the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have at least 3 pairs of leaves before transplanting to the garden so they have enough room to develop strong roots
  • Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be “hardened off”. Accustom young plants to outdoor conditions by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Be sure to protect them from wind and hot sun at first. If frost threatens at night, cover or bring containers indoors, then take them out again in the morning. This hardening off process toughens the plant’s cell structure and reduces transplant shock and scalding.

Planting in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic soil. Make sure you did not grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplant or potatoes in the bed the previous year to avoid disease problems.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 8 inches. Level with a rake to remove clumps of grass and stones.
  • Tomatoes should be set 30-48 inches apart in a row with the rows spaced 3-4 feet apart. It can be tempting to space tomatoes more closely at planting time, but if you plant too closely you will increase the chance of disease, and decrease yields.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball. 
  • Carefully remove the plant from its pot and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root development. 
  • Tomatoes can be planted deeply, with the stem buried to the first set of leaves. The more deeply they are planted the more roots will form, providing the plant with additional support and better ability to take up nutrients. Some gardeners plant tomatoes by digging a horizontal trench and laying the plant in the trench with the top 2-4 inches of the plant pointing upward.
  • Fill the planting hole with soil to the top and press soil down firmly with your hand leaving a slight depression around the plant to hold water. 
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker. This is particularly important if you are trying different varieties. It is very difficult to tell which variety is which from the foliage.  
  • Water thoroughly, so that a puddle forms in the saucer you have created. This settles the plants in, drives out air pockets and results in good root-to-soil contact.
  • Place your plant support at this time. You can try tomato cages or staking. Unsupported plants will sprawl on the ground, require no pruning, and will probably produce a larger yield of smaller fruit than will staked plants. For larger, cleaner, more perfect fruits, support plants as they grow. Growing on stakes: Place strong stakes in the ground and set plants about 6 inches from the stakes. Growing in cages: Place a cage around a single plant; let the vines grow and enlarge within the cage, no pruning  will be necessary

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. 
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. This is especially important for tomatoes as their roots may be easily damaged when weeding, and this can lead to blossom end rot.
  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • If growing on stakes: As the plants grow, allow only one or two main stems to grow and pinch out any other side shoots as they form. Gently tie the one or two remaining shoots to the stake; don't pull them tightly against the stake. If growing in cages, no pruning is necessary.
  • Whether to remove the side shoots, or suckers, that grow out of the leaf axils or not depends on the support system used. Gardeners using stakes usually snap off these side shoots. They typically get earlier and larger tomatoes but overall production tends to be less. If tomatoes are grown in cages, the suckers are generally left on, although it's a good idea to pinch the tip out of them when they are 6-8 inches long. Regardless you may want to remove all the growth from the bottom 6-10 inches of the plant. This helps to improve air circulation and reduce the spread of diseases such as early blight. Wait until the plants are knee-high. In the morning when the plants have the most water in them, snap off the lower growth while it is small. Any plants that look sick with distorted foliage or have a mosaic pattern on the leaves should be removed as they may have a virus that can spread to the other plants. It is best to do this early in the season.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.

Harvesting and Preserving Tips

  • Determinate tomato plants ripen a heavy crop over a few weeks. Indeterminate varieties bear fruit continuously until frost. Remember that the days to harvest refers to the time from setting out transplants in the garden.
  • Pick tomatoes when they are as ripe as possible. They should be fully colored and firm and picked regularly to avoid overloading plants.
  • At the end of the season, when you know there will be a frost, pick all the almost-ripe tomatoes you can, and ripen them in brown bags or spread on newspapers at room temperature. Many cultivars will store for months. Store only sound fruit, at 50-60°F. Do NOT refrigerate and try to avoid having the fruit touch each other.
  • The foliage of tomatoes is toxic and should not be eaten.
  • Tomato fruits are enjoyed in many cooked dishes as a flavoring. Use them to make soups, sauces, stews, ketchup, paste, juice, quiche, and pies. Add them to curries, casseroles, and chutney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juliet Hybrids are spectacular producers! I have been growing Juliet Hybrid tomatoes for many years. They taste great and they stay firm and delicious even after sitting on the counter for two weeks. Just a couple of plants and you will have all the tomatoes you will need for slicing for salads or just eating. Juliet's are surprisingly prolific and almost never get blight like most other varieties even at the end of the season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standing up to heat, vigorous, great yields Purchased as plant at local nursery. These have been really great during a rough season in my tomato garden. It has been brutally hot (highs around 100, lows around 85) in Virginia for weeks and these are 8 feet tall and continue to set long chains of firm, ripe fruit. Huge yields. No splitting, no rot. They do jump right off the plants when they are ripe, so I pick them when the shoulders are a little green. They seem more like a slightly small paste tomato to me - much less juicy than a cherry but still great for fresh eating. I was skeptical about this hybrid because I find "salad" type tomatoes annoying - I end up with way too many of them and they are not as versatile as paste types for me. I've really loved these and have not found them so small that they aren't "worth it" for cooking. I grew the Burpee "Salsa" hybrid last year and while I liked that tomato's flavor, it did not yield very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sweeter Flavor that last We love these tomato's. They have a nice sweet flavor but not to sweet. They grow nice in our clement (Virginia), produce lots of fruit (typically the first to harvest) and once you harvest, they last a long time before going bad. They keep producing fruit all summer long and we never run out. You can also can them but its allot of work since they are smaller but wow they taste good in you food. Someone said they didn't have much flavor but I have never experienced that. If you don't have flavor, you need to feed your soil with the right nutrition. You will only get as good of a flavor based on the nutrition you are feeding the plants you are growing. - Iowa Farm Boy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lucky purchase This was a very difficult year to grow tomatoes on Long Island. Terrible drought all summer. This tomato far out did all the others - it is still going strong in October when the others failed 2 months ago. I will definitely plant more next spring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juliet is our new favorite cherry paste tomato What a great hearty cherry tomato. Giant plants, huge production, slightly larger with no cracking, Juliet is more paste like and substantial than most cherry tomatoes. Great for snacking, wonderful dehydrated "sun dried" or marinated for salads. Will be my "go to" cherry along with Sungold and Black Pearl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tomato, but definitely not a paste tomato First year growing these. Plants demonstrate very good disease resistance and are loaded with fruit. They are definitely smaller than Roma tomatoes - too small to try and make paste or can them. Fruit is sweet and juicy. For us personally, we prefer other types of cherry and grape tomatoes, but are happy we tried these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet strong tomato taste I planted these to see how large they would get for tomato past. Not big enough, but the flavor was fantastic. I slice them down the center and use them to flavor tacos or hamburgers. I slice them sideways for salads. They are born in clusters and almost all the tomatoes in a cluster ripen at the same time. They are easy to pick as the tomatoes release with a small "tickle" to the bottom of the tomato. Its easy to get a quart to half gallon at a time from the plants. Love the flavor.
