How to plant Hybrid Tomato seeds
Hybrid Tomatoes

Would you like to easily grow a reliable and steady supply of fresh, juicy tomatoes to pick from your garden over a long season? We recommend planting these hybrid tomatoes to anyone, and especially if you have had challenges growing tomatoes in the past, or if you live in an area with high humidity or other extreme weather conditions.

The best hybrid tomatoes are created by years of work by plant breeders to capture superior traits of at least two tomato varieties and combine them into one greatly improved new variety. Hybridizers focus on increasing a tomato's harvest yield, and improving resistance to problems such as viral and fungal diseases and fruit cracking.

Unlike open-pollinated and heirloom tomato varieties, hybrids have traits from at least two tomato varieties, so any seeds harvested from a hybrid tomato grown in your garden will produce tomatoes with different traits from the parent plant. With hybrid tomatoes, you can rely on a professional quality harvest and home grown taste, no matter where you garden.

How to Plant and Grow Hybrid Tomato

Bee introduces how to plant

Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 75-90°F., germination is in 8-15 days. Transplant into the garden 2-4 ft. apart after all danger of frost.

Hybrid tomatoes often grow too large for the typical 3 foot tomato cage. We have found the following staking method provides sufficient support for these vigorous plants. Begin by tying each plant to one 6 foot stake. Then create a 2 foot square with 4 more stakes around each plant. Wrap garden twine around the stakes at 6 inch intervals up the square, adding more rows of twine as your plants get taller.
