Watch Video – Growing Early Tomatoes

Gardeners in the Northeast, across the northern states, and in some areas of the West Coast all share an interest in Tomatoes that ripen early (generally 57 to 65 days from transplant). For those of us with a short growing season or cool summer weather, early varieties guarantee we’ll have decent crop of ripe Tomatoes. In our video, author and Tomato expert Scott Daigre explains that early varieties are generally determinate and produce smaller fruits, but they do include a range of colors and shapes. Some of his recommendations: ‘Matina’, ‘Red Rocket’, ‘Siberian’, ‘Sungold’, ‘Sweet 100’, ‘Taxi’, ‘Rosalito’, and ‘Gold Nugget’.
