    Days to Maturity: 75 Days

    Seeds per pack: 15

    • Choose a planting location: Tomatoes need full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day) and well-draining soil. If possible, choose a spot with a southern or western exposure to maximize sun exposure. If your soil is heavy clay or sandy, amend it with organic matter such as compost, aged manure, or peat moss.

    • Start seeds indoors (optional): Tomatoes can be started indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area. Use a high-quality seed starting mix and keep the soil moist and warm (70-75°F). Once the seedlings have developed their first true leaves, transplant them to larger containers or cell packs.

    • Transplant seedlings: When seedlings are 6 to 8 weeks old and have grown to be 6 to 10 inches tall, they are ready to be transplanted outdoors. Harden off the seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions (starting with a few hours per day and increasing each day). Plant them in the ground, burying the stem up to the first set of leaves.

    • Water regularly: Tomatoes need consistent moisture to grow well, but don't overwater them. Water deeply once a week (more often in extreme heat or dry conditions) and avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can lead to disease.

    • Fertilize regularly: Tomatoes are heavy feeders and benefit from regular fertilization. Use a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) or one high in phosphorus (5-10-5) once a month during the growing season.

    • Provide support: Most tomato plants need support to keep the fruit off the ground and prevent it from rotting. Use stakes, cages, or trellises to support the plants.

    • Control pests and diseases: Watch for common tomato pests such as aphids, spider mites, and hornworms, and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Keep an eye out for fungal diseases such as early blight and treat with a fungicide if necessary.

    • Harvest fruit: Tomatoes are ready to harvest when they have reached full color and are slightly soft to the touch. Don't leave them on the vine too long or they will become overripe and mushy.
