Tomato - Heartland

The Tomato Heartland, 'Lycopersicon lycopersicum', is an excellent performer and is ideal for small space gardening. The dwarf compact plants produce lots of good-flavored fruit. The vines grow to about 3 feet and have lovely big leaves. The tomatoes are very tasty and weigh a nice 6 to 8 ounces. Heartland tomatoes can be grown in a large pot such as a 1/2 whiskey barrel size pot. It is an excellent variety for small areas and compact spaces.

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.

Wow! We harvested over 200 tomatoes from this little plant and theyre still coming. Just did a taste test with 7 of our medium varieties and this one came out on top. Produces early. Would be great for containers.
