Additionally, their firm texture and low moisture content make them ideal for canning and preserving, as well as for creating flavorful sauces and salsas.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, Arkansas Traveler tomatoes will continue to produce fruit throughout the growing season. Plant them in full sun and well-drained soil for optimal growth. Start seeds indoors approximately 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, then transplant them outdoors once the soil has warmed. Space plants about 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper airflow and growth. Provide support through staking or caging to prevent branches from bending under the weight of the fruit. Regular watering and occasional fertilization will promote healthy growth and ensure a plentiful harvest of these flavorful tomatoes.
