 Tiny Tim

This drarf early tomato requires only 1 square foot of space to grow and will fruit in 60 days from transplant. It has determinate growth, branches profusely and is self supporting - no staking is required. The small size and controlled growth means it can also be grown indoors for Winter cherry tomatoes! The numerous fruits are tiny (5-10mm), possibly the smallest in the world!
