We're starting them for you! We're excited to offer our Shelby Tomato plugs. The Shelby Tomato is a determinate hybrid variety that thrives in conditions that other tomatoes would surely suffer and its extensive disease package of the Shelby is what sets this San Marzano-style fruit apart from the rest. The dark red fruits are extra-large, weighing from 3.5 to 5.5 ounces, and the elongated barrel-style stores well after harvest. The widely-adapted plants are hardy and compact and will produce even in the harshest conditions. Solanum Lycopersicum. 10,20, 40, or 100 plugs

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.

*Note - limited quantity available each week, plugs will be shipped on Mondays & Tuesdays* If you are ordering Seeds and/or tools with your plugs, please note that they will all ship out together the following Monday or Tuesday with your plugs.
