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.

Seed garden label included in seed pack.

Red Snapper tomato seeds

My order from Hoss came very nicely packaged. Most of the tomato seeds came up and are growing. Can’t wait to try them!

Impressed

Very happy with the germination rate and performance. I’m in Southern California, so we have a long growing season. But this was the only tomato plant that grew and thrived after being planted very late in the season and even made it into winter yielding some pretty tasty tomatoes after all other plants gave up in the cold weather. Though they are determinate, they grow pretty large—reaching over 7 ft.

Red Snapper seed

Seed was fine. I probably got 95-98 % germination, however, after about week three the plants fell over and went down hill from there. The stems were not strong enough to support the growth an thy fell over. I now only have about three plants surviving. I used the Jiffy 75 cell peat pods which I think attributed to the fatal results.I have some of the plastic Hoss trays but currently didn’t have a greenhouse to use them in and had to do it in doors.

Quality seeds!

Seeded 50 Red Snapper pelleted seeds, got 98% germination and all are 4 inches tall now, very vigorous and strong. Looking forward to getting them in garden soon. Thanks Hoss for quality at a great price.
