Supersonic Tomato Seeds,(F1 Hybrid) VEGETABLE
Supersonic Tomatoes grow on indeterminate plants. They are red, meaty and can get as big as 12 ounces without cracking. People in the Northeast like to grow this variety which needs a little support as they grow. Marigolds make good companion plants for tomatoes because the roots contain thiopene.
You can start " tomato plants indoors 6 to 8 weeks before your last frost date, sowing 1 or 2 seeds in each peat pot or planting cell. Use sterile potting soil or a soil-less mix to minimize damping off, a fungal problem in young seedlings. In warm areas, you can direct-sow seeds once temperatures remain above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, choosing a site that receives full sun for most of the day. Plant seeds or seedlings 18 to 30 inches apart, in rows 3 or 4 feet apart. Plant seedlings deeply, since extra roots will develop on stems that are below the soil line. Adding calcium to each planting hole in the form of 1 tablespoon of ground lime, oyster shells or crushed eggshells can help prevent blossom end rot, a problem that delays fruit production..
