I also grew another amazing dwarf type tomato in my aero-garden once, called "Hahms Gelbe"....a German variety. They were tasty little yellow tomatoes...

Ok so here are the "Red Peach" seeds this morning, germinating in moist paper towels...




The "Principe Borghese" are germinating this morning now too! Principe Borghese is a wonderful Italian heirloom type that is best for sun-dried tomatoes. I plan on drying the tomatoes in the sun when it's harvest time!

Ok so I've got the sprouts potted up now in soil. You guys will get to watch them grow from scratch with me!


Forgot I had started this thread before too but that's ok...


Growing Tomatoes out-of-season, Indoors


Hoping to be harvesting some tomatoes by the end of September/early October and then well into fall and winter possibly too. We'll see how it goes.

QuestionDecisions, Decisions, Decisions!


Well it looks like my mom is stealing my Principe Borghese and Red Peach for her balcony!


So now I'm inspired to start something different. Maybe you guys can help me decide which 2 to sow. Here are the ones I'm going to choose from...


1. totem - compact patio tomato plant
2. sweetie - indeterminate vine with extra sweet cherry tomatoes
3. gold nugget - determinate plant with yellow fruits
4. lunchbox VF - determinate bush type plants produce 30-40 egg size fruits
5. patio hybrid - extra early producing dwarf variety
6. balcony charm - small determinate variety with excellent taste
7. christmas grapes - indeterminate variety that's vigorous and high-yielding



Which two should I grow? What about a red and yellow one together?!

Sorry to change the plan but my mom loves tomatoes and wants some plants for her balcony. Funny when I asked her months ago, she didn't want any!



Ok so I've decided on Patio Hybrid and Gold Nugget! I'm gonna start the seeds again in paper towel...

a red and yellow together and they would look so good together when they start ripening that would look the best and red tomatoes and yellow tomatoes are both good

That's exactly what I was thinking Raccoon....how ornamental they would be when they ripen!


Should I grow balcony charm or Patio Hybrid?

Indeterminate tomato plants are huge vines but determinate ones are smaller dwarf or bush types.

Yes but now I've been noticing that both the gold nugget and the totem, will be ready around the same time. Gold nugget is 60 days until harvest and totem is 67!!! How cool is that?!


Totem and Gold Nugget it is then!


Sowing them now....
