65 days to harvest from transplant Lycopersicon lycopersicum
We share Craig LeHouillier’s passion for tomatoes & are in awe of the many dwarf varieties he has developed in collaboration. Organic Fred’s Tie-Dye Dwarf Tomato is essentially Berkeley Pink Tie-Dye on a dwarf 3′ plant, its abundant, striped slicers averaging 8 ounces. You’ll enjoy plenty of fruit when you grow these in containers, all the more if you trellis them ever so slightly.
