Red Robin Tomato is an open-pollinated cherry variety with dwarf plants that are ideal for hanging baskets, patio pots, or even growing indoors. This dwarf, determinate variety produces plants that only get 8-12″ tall, but produce loads of cherry tomatoes. The fruits average 1″ in diameter and grow in clusters for easy harvesting. Red Robin doesn’t require stakes or a trellis, just let them hang over their pot or container.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
