Containers Choice Red Tomato is a hybrid tomato variety that was specifically bred to be grown in small spaces. This "dwarf" determinate variety produces compact plants that are perfect for patio, container, or raised bed gardens. Although compact, the plants are extremely productive and produce loads of 6 to 8 ounce fruits.

The fruits are slightly flattened, resembling a beefsteak-style tomato. The plants have unique leaves with a "rugose" or wrinkled appearance. The fruits mature uniformly with no green shoulders. Plants will require minor staking, but not to the extent that a full-size determinate or indeterminate tomato variety would.

Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
