Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
To begin your Cherokee Green Tomato journey, sow the seeds a quarter-inch deep. If you're starting indoors, aim for 6-8 weeks ahead of the last anticipated frost. Alternatively, direct planting in the garden requires a sufficiently warm soil. When it comes to spacing, aim for 24-36 inches between plants and maintain rows 36-48 inches apart. Owing to its indeterminate growth nature, the Cherokee Green Tomato thrives with support. Hence, staking or caging is not just recommended, but essential. This will not only support the plant but also maximize its fruit production throughout the season.
