Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
The ACE 55 Tomato is a determinate variety, meaning its growth is more compact, and it typically completes its growing cycle in a shorter timeframe. Start by planting the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Once seedlings are robust and at least 6 inches tall, and all threat of frost has passed, transplant them outdoors, spacing them about 2 feet apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. This tomato thrives in full sun and appreciates consistent watering and well-draining soil. Its natural resistance to many diseases ensures a higher success rate for gardeners, making it a favorite among both beginners and seasoned growers.
