As with most of the tomato varieties that are to be grown in Alaska, these need to be started indoors in late March or early April. Transplant date outdoors in the second week of June.
Locate the warmest microclimate available and avoid extensive overhead watering.
Start seeds indoor towards the end of March and set outside the first or second week of June in the far North. Make sure to “pot up” frequently to avoid leggy plants.
Sow seeds 1/4″ deep and use a heat mat to speed germination.
Minimum 10 seeds per packet
