HOW TO GROW: Plant seeds indoors or in a greenhouse in March, or 8-10 weeks before your last frost date. Plant quarter-inch deep and keep moist until germination. Seedlings must have direct, full sunlight. Plants cannot be exposed to freezing temperatures. Transplant outside after all danger of frost. Tomatoes begin to grow heavily in hot weather, but do not produce fruit in temperatures above 95 degrees. Harvest the tomatoes as they turn red and slightly soft to the touch. Tomatoes are medium paste-type in size and determinate, which means they set fruit heavily for easier picking and canning. Tomatoes may be pruned if you wish fewer fruits that are larger, but I don't prune my plants because I'm happy to have more tomatoes that are slightly smaller. Tomatoes tend to crack easily when overwatered. Make sure you reduce watering when tomatoes begin to ripen.
