Micro Dwarf tomatoes definitely don]t need a lot of space, but that's not Little Red Riding Hood's only advantage. The plants bear their fruit early, especially if you start the seeds indoors, and they deliver a long fruiting season. Short of space? We've even heard of people growing this variety in hanging bowls for a cascade of fresh tomatoes in an unexpected place. Whether you're a greenhouse grower or only have a balcony garden, Red Riding Hood tomatoes will deliver a harvest that matches their fairytale name.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

    How to Harvest

    Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.

    Disappointed

    I was really excited to grow these, but less than half the seeds (and there weren’t many to begin with) I receive actually sprouted, and despite all the proper care, half died within a week and the rest did not survive long after.
