Care for Gem F1 Tomato Seeds
- These cultivars aren’t usually the best choice for growing in containers because the plant grows quite tall, its roots grow extensively as well, requiring more water and nutrients than in a container setup.
- These varieties need to have their rampantly growing vines managed. This is usually done with pruning and staking.
- Climbing types are typically pruned to just one or two leader stems, and trained to climb a string or trellis.
- With indeterminate varieties, pruning and removing suckers allows the plant to focus energy on fruit production for the remaining stems – putting less energy into foliage growth.
- Indeterminate cultivars often have flowers, immature fruit, and ripe fruit on the plant all at the same time.
- Instead of producing all of their fruit more or less at once, as determinate varieties tend to do, indeterminate ones gradually produce smaller but more frequent harvests over the growing season.
