We love these pearlescent pink tomatoes with heirloom deliciousness and well-balanced sweetness, impressively abundant on dwarf 3.5-foot plants. Arctic Rose is among our first tomatoes to ripen, her fruits often 5 to 6 ounces. Like many tomatoes, early season fruits are larger than late, especially if nutrients are a limiting factor, as they often are in containers. All of Fruition’s dwarf tomatoes will grow in 5-gallon containers, though they’ll truly thrive in 10-gallon containers or larger. We share our go-to containers for gardening as well as organic slow-release fertilizer making container gardening easier and more abundant. For all dwarf tomatoes, though trellising is optional, a little goes a long way in helping fruit ripen quickly and easily harvested.

Planting Method: Transplant Only
When to sow: 6-8 weeks before last frost
Seed Depth: 1/8 inch Days to Germination: 7-10 at 80°F (27°C)
Sowing and seedling care: Don’t start too early! Sow indoors 2 seeds/cell or soil block, & thin to 1. We recommend sowing on a heat mat at 80°F to emergence, 75°F after. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings. Pot up to 3-4” pots when first true leaves, submerging 3/4 of the stem below soil.
When to transplant: Harden off & transplant outdoors after frost, again burying stem.
Strong 3′ trellis optional but helpful. Water soil, not leaves. Prune lowest stem “suckers” as they emerge.
Transplant Spacing: 2 feet Sun Needs: Full
Days to Harvest: 67
Harvest: Indeterminate. A scrumptious snack straight off the vine! Enjoy fruit early and often, and until frost too 🙂
