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.
