Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate tomato variety, the Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato will produce fruit continuously until the first frost. To get started, plant the seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. When transplanting outdoors, ensure you space the plants roughly 24-36 inches apart, in rows 36-48 inches apart. These tomatoes thrive best under full sun and in well-drained soil. Regular watering, combined with periodic fertilization, will yield a healthy and bountiful crop. As the tomatoes mature, they'll adopt a beautiful orange hue, signaling their readiness for harvest.
