World’s earliest tomato. Growing tomatoes in short-season areas can be next to impossible. Success may be yours if you try Sub-Arctic Plenty, as it is ideal for growing and ripening well under cool conditions. Developed in Canada, it’s even been grown in the southern Yukon! Compact vines produce lots of small deep-red fruit with great tart tomato flavor. Staking is usually not necessary. Determinate. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

Growing Strong
Ordered these seeds a couple of weeks ago. Germinated less than half the packet (saving the other seeds for now) in 6 days, now have 16 seedlings 3 inches tall in an upstairs south-facing window. Can't do better than that on the 1st of March in zone 8b!
