And we know that many loyal Tomatomaniacs enjoy the opportunity to share a bit of this springtime frenzy with family or their favorite tomato lovers across the country. 

Weve expanded our offerings this season and feature three terrific trios. This one is our CONTAINER COLLECTION: Melanie’s Ballet, Gold Nugget and Midnight Snack.

Melanie’s Ballet

Don’t let its small stature fool you; no dwarf variety has delighted us more than this early and prolific favorite. Happy in a container or in the ground, this dense and beautiful pink plum is produced on a plant that is rarely over 2 feet tall. Production is heavy and the meaty fruit comes in at or around 3 oz. Heavy rugose foliage makes this plant quite a looker and the taste is exceptional in this class of smaller plums. Use it in salads or cooking, or enjoy it fresh with just a pinch of salt.

 Gold Nugget

Early. Productive. Delicious. Compact. Where do we sign? This cherry’s a champ, especially for space-challenged gardeners who want early and dependable production in a smaller package. Small golden orbs cover this tidy plant for a big part of the season and hang well on the plant so they’re ready when you need them. Snacking, salads, roasting. Yes, yes and yes. It’s an all-around and bonafide winner that might just be the earliest tomato in your garden.

Midnight Snack

This charming cherry beauty has been enchanting gardeners since its spring debut a few years ago. Shiny red orbs with a blue anthocyanin shoulder, it’s productive, gorgeous and amazingly tasty. The quality of the fruit, the long season and its “hang time” on the plant are all reasons it belongs on your seedling list this spring. Expect pretty blue/purple expression in the foliage as well and whether planted in a large pot or in the garden it will be an attractive spring feature.
