They required a long growing season, so in the United States, the most common practice is to start the seeds from heirloom Arkansas Traveler tomato seeds indoors several weeks before the last frost date. Once frost is no longer a danger, the seedlings are transplanted outside, deeper in the soil than in their original containers. As with most indeterminate varieties, the plants grow tall so staking or trellising is required.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eVarious Culinary Uses for Arkansas Traveler Tomato Seeds:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTomatoes grown from open-pollinated, heirloom Arkansas Traveler tomato seeds are mild in flavor - great for kids who think they don't like fresh tomatoes.
