A wonderful container cherry tomato. The plants reach only 12 inches tall and produce small, nicely flavored red cherry tomatoes. If you don't have much room, plant a few of these in containers on your deck or hide a few amongst the flowers in your front yard. They are so small that they don't require any trellising. Indeterminate.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1/4 inch
Plant Spacing: 2-3 feet
Row Spacing: 3-4 feet
Start indoors 6 weeks before last danger of frost. Requires soil temperatures of 75‐85°F to germinate. Use of a heating mat is recommended. Transplant when all danger of frost has passed. Plant deep, removing all but the top leaves and planting all the available stem.

We planted our Tiny Tim tomatoes late season, and once they set fruit, moved them into the sun porch to overwinter. These little gems ripened and produced over the winter. They are perfect for cooking. They hold up beautifully when tossed with pasta, haricot verts, or other vegetables in a sautee pan. A moment or two of heat is all that is needed to bring the skins to tenderness, and accent the bright flavor of these juicy little tomatoes. Just the perfect size for container gardens. We can't wait to start some more for Spring.
I started 2 Tiny Tims this winter, in the house, then moved them out to the greenhouse. They are 12" tall and have so many tomatoes you really can't see the leaves! Tons of tomatoes!!! Currant size up to big cherry size, 2 plants keeps us in fresh cherry tomatoes everyday. I am starting 2 more plants to bring in the house this winter. These are a keeper for sure.
