Orange Hat Dwarf Tomato Seeds - Solanum Lycopersicum - Miniature & Abundant
Quantity: 10 Seeds
Orange Hat is one of the best dwarf Tomato varieties in existence. These compact plants are determinate, and grow to about 9 inches tall, and are laden with fruits which have no issues ripening before the frost comes, even in shorter growing seasons. The plants will comfortable live in 6 inch pots, or can be planted in abundance as a productive tomato ground cover. The plants are resistant to many diseases, making them that much more reliable. These plants grow vigorously, and when sown early in the season, provide an early crop in northern climates. They have an exellent sweet/acid balance, and are juicy but firm. This variety is a must have for any tomato lover.
All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

Tomatoes are best started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost to ensure that they get a good head start at life; for us here at the farm, the best time is around mid march. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat greatly aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 5-10 days to germinate. Once the seedlings have emerged, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 7°C or higher. Tomatoes do best when grown in full sun, but partial sun will yield decent results too.
