Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, the Hillbilly Tomato will continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until halted by frost. Begin by sowing seeds indoors, about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Upon transplanting outdoors, maintain a spacing of about 24-36 inches between plants in rows that are 36-48 inches apart. Given their vigorous growth, staking or caging is recommended to support the plant as it climbs. Thriving best in full sun, it requires well-drained soil and consistent watering, especially during fruit development. As the fruits ripen, their unique marbling becomes more pronounced, signaling the perfect time for harvest.
