The smallest and earliest of our Idaho bred varieties...great for containers!
Extremely early variety bred by the U of Idaho in the 1960s. Small fruits range from cherries to saladette size, on very compact plants--excellent for containers, and for short season areas.
Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well.
Seeds grown by Sonshine Acres in Emmett, Idaho and Titbout's Seeds in Missoula, Montana.
Directions: Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost and transplant out after. Bury past first set of leaves, add eggshells to soil for calcium. Providing support is optional for this variety.
