VARIETALS:

Berkeley Pink Tie Dye: Fun and delicious medium sized tomatoes. Fruits are dark pink with green striping and the flesh is pink with yellow streaks. The flavor is outstanding - sweet and complex like the finest heirlooms.

Supersweet 100: The classic sweet, red cherry tomato. A tried and true variety that will produce a seemingly endless harvest of perfect cherries. 

Black Cherry: Sweet and juicy cherry tomato. Fruits have a gorgeous dark pigment and dynamic flavor. 


CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Light: Give full sun, 7+ hours of direct sunlight per day. Must be grown outdoors.

Water: Water the roots deeply and thoroughly, never the leaves, 2-3x a week during dry spells. 

Planting: Prune the lowest leaves, and bury the root ball deeply in a pot with drainage holes, so that one third to one half of the stem is underground. Water immediately.

Care: Pinch off flowers until the plant is at least two feet tall. Give support with a tomato cage, and use extra tall stakes for additional support. Learn to identify “suckers” and mindfully prune twice a month.
