Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Aunt Ruby’s Green Tomato seeds require a bit of a head start indoors, ideally 6 to 10 weeks before the area's last frost date. For successful germination, plant the seeds about 1/8 inch deep in a potting mix, ensuring they're placed in a sunny, warm spot. Within 7 to 14 days, you'll see the first signs of life, and once the seedlings boast two true leaves, they're ready to face the world outside. Choose a plot with well-drained, fertile soil, spacing them 24 inches apart in rows that are 36 inches apart. Regular watering, monthly fertilization with a balanced organic mix, and judicious pruning will help ensure a healthy crop. The plants, being indeterminate, will continually produce until the cold sets in. When it comes to harvest time, you can pick them while green or wait for a yellow blush to appear. And remember, these plants can reach up to 3 feet, so a sturdy cage or trellis will offer them the support they need to flourish.
