Early Girl Tomato
The Tomato Early Girl, 'Lycopersicon lycopersicum', is a very early slicing variety that produces tasty fruit throughout the summer. There's no faster, better-tasting tomato than Early Girl. Early Girl produces huge crops of 4 to 6 ounce fruits that are great for canning or slicing. It produces dark red fruits in abundance and is an outstanding early variety for short season gardens. Early Girl is an indeterminate variety (tall growing) so provide some support as plants grow.
Tomatoes should be planted outside after the last average frost date. In warm winter/hot summer areas, tomatoes can be planted in early fall for winter harvest. Tomatoes prefer well drained soil that is high in organic matter. Tomatoes need at least 1 inch of water a week. Soak to depth of 6 to 10 inches when watering. They need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
