Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being an indeterminate type, the Abe Lincoln Tomato will continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until the first frost. This trait makes it an excellent choice for those looking for a steady yield. Start by sowing the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Once the seedlings have at least two sets of leaves and the danger of frost has passed, transplant them outdoors, spacing them about 2-3 feet apart. They prefer full sun and well-draining soil. Regular watering and staking or caging will help support the plant as it grows and produces its bountiful fruits. The added bonus of its resistance to common tomato diseases like early blight and alternaria stem canker ensures a healthier, more fruitful yield.
