Once considered the world's smallest tomato plant, reaching only a diminutive 6 to 8 INCHES tall! What they in height, they make up for in production, bearing endless amounts of flavorful, 1 oz., deep red fruits with a characteristic pointed blossom end.

 

For the best flavor allow fruits to fully mature to a dark red, as opposed to an orangey-red while remaining on the plant.

 

I have found over the years that this particular variety has a couple of very important cultural requirements:

 

  • Plants do much better when the root ball is planted (and settled in) just at or slightly above THE SOIL LEVEL of an almost completed filled pot. Think 'sitting above the soil' but the roots aren't exposed.

 

  • This particular variety DOES NOT like being over-watered. In fact, it will rot very quickly if it is. I 'plant and forget' (not quite completely forget but close).

 

Micro Tom is an ideal house plant for windowsills or patios. I have many customers who purchase them for gifts.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
