Sowing & Growing:
In cooler regions, begin sowing tomato plants in a seed-starting container indoors, in a warm location like a greenhouse or under grow lights. Sow Juliet Hybrid Tomato seeds indoors 5-6 weeks before your region’s final frost. Plant seeds 1/4" in a 24” deep container, in a warm moist seed-starting mix. Use a root growth fertilizer at the time of sowing. Germination will take 1-2 weeks. You can sow Juliet Hybrid Tomato seeds outdoors once the threat of frost has passed. These cherry hybrid tomatoes prefer a temperature range of 65-85℉ and a soil temperature of 70℉ for germination. When it comes to tomatoes, Juliet Hybrids can tolerate cooler conditions and are planted during fall in warmer regions. Once seedlings grow 3-4” tall with 1-2 sets of true leaves, transplant tomatoes outdoors by hardening off plants before tilling rich, composted soil and preparing 8-12” holes. Remove all of the smaller leaves beneath the top set before planting Juliet Hybrids just 2” above the soil, with its sturdy set of leaves sitting on top. Space the plants 2’ apart with 3-4’ in between rows. It’s recommended to use raised rows for tomato planting, along with a trellis or cage for support. Keep in mind how you’ll need to provide more space with a cage (up to 4’). Feed your resilient cherry hybrid tomatoes plants by scattering a fertilizer made of peat moss and vermiculite throughout crop development. Water Juliet Hybrid Tomato plants in the morning, 1-2” per week or once soil is dry. Fast-maturing cherry tomato varieties are crack-resistant and grow bundles of red small-sized yet super-sweet oblong fruit. In general, tomatoes prefer full sun and rich, warm, well-drained soil with added compost and a pH level of 6.0-6.8. These indeterminate powerful seeds came from a Santa grape variety and continue to produce pungent 1-2 oz Juliet Hybrid Tomatoes all summer long!
Depending on which seed variety you’ve chosen, the period of maturity will differ. Generally, tomatoes are categorized into three seasons as: early, mid and late-season crops. As Juliet Hybrid seeds are an early season tomato, these resilient plants should be ready for harvest 60 days from the sowing date. As an indeterminate crop, this variety will continue to produce and ripen once they’re picked from the vine. Harvest Juliet Hybrid Tomatoes when their skin still feels more solid to the touch. In general, it’s recommended to begin harvesting tomatoes once they start to turn in color. With Juliet Hybrid varieties, allow their color to ripen to a rich red, as these saladette tomatoes grow sturdy on the vine. Cherry hybrid tomatoes will provide a few rounds of harvesting and actively produce tasty rich red fruit throughout the summer. Harvest tomato plants by gently pulling the oblong-shaped fruit from their calyx hat with one hand, while holding the stem with the other. Since Juliet Hybrid Tomato seeds are known for their small yet powerful flavor, they bring the perfect acidic punch that you’ll need to make the ideal tomato sauce or sweet paste!
