Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
For those looking to cultivate the Dr. Wyche's Yellow Tomato, begin by sowing seeds a quarter-inch deep indoors, approximately 6-8 weeks before the anticipated last frost. If planting directly outdoors, ensure the soil is sufficiently warm. Once your seedlings are ready, space them 36 inches apart, keeping rows 48 inches apart. Given its indeterminate growth pattern, the plant will bear fruit consistently throughout the season. To support its growth and ensure maximum yield, it's recommended to stake or cage the plants. Regular watering and full sun exposure will help these tomatoes thrive and bring out their best flavor.
