Gardener's Notes: Tomatoes are a warm season crop. Start seeds indoors in a container or seed starting mix 6 weeks before night temperatures regularly reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius). Keep moist but not soggy and very warm 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit (24-27 degrees Celsius). When seedlings are 2-3 inches tall, transplant into larger individual containers.
When weather is warm and night temperatures stay above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius), plant outdoors in full sun in rich, fertile soil. Provide tall, sturdy cages or stakes at planting time. Water consistently. Pick when fruits are fully colored up and give slightly to the touch.
