Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, the Striped German Tomato will continue to grow and produce fruit until the first frost, demanding vertical space as it stretches upwards. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Once the seedlings have developed and the last frost has passed, they can be transplanted outdoors. They prefer a sunny location with well-draining soil. Given their potential for height and bearing heavy fruit, a sturdy stake or cage is recommended to offer support, aiding in optimal fruit production and health. Regular watering and periodic fertilization will ensure a healthy crop and vibrant fruits.
