Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being an indeterminate variety, the Japanese Trifele Tomato will continually produce fruit throughout the season until the first frost halts its growth. Start by planting seeds indoors, roughly 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost in your region. Once ready for transplanting outdoors, ensure plants are spaced approximately 24-36 inches apart in rows spaced 36-48 inches apart. The plants thrive best in well-drained soil under full sun. Regular watering and occasional fertilizing will ensure a bountiful harvest. As the fruits develop, their deep mahogany hue will become more pronounced, signaling the perfect time to harvest and enjoy.
