fox cherry tomatoes
This seed packet is a fun item to tuck in a card for that gardener in your life! Fox Cherry Tomatoes grow on vines typical of most cherries. Unlike most cherry tomatoes, the fruits are large enough to use as regular tomatoes–the 2 inch tomatoes can be sliced into small rounds, or quartered, or chomped whole in single mouth-filling bites. Cherry tomatoes are more disease-resistant than standard varieties.
Sow indoors 3-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant after frost into good garden soil. Provide support for these tall vines. Prune after they've been in the ground for about 3 or 4 weeks to decrease soil-foliage contact, increase air flow around leaves, and establish sturdy structure.
