Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Being of the indeterminate type, the Red Zebra Tomato will keep producing fruits throughout the season. To start, plant the seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Use a well-draining soil mix and ensure they receive adequate warmth and light. When it's time to transplant outdoors, choose a spot that receives full sun. Space the plants about 24-36 inches apart, giving them ample room to grow and thrive. Regular watering, combined with occasional feeding, will ensure a healthy plant and a bountiful harvest. Remember to offer support, like stakes or cages, as the plant grows and starts bearing fruit.
