Tom Thumb Micro Dwarf Cherry Tomatoes is as a nod to the real person, Tom Thumb. Per Britannica: "Tom Thumb was a
pseudonym of Charles Stratton, (born January 4, 1838—died July 15, 1883), American showman noted for his small stature. He was the first major attraction promoted by the circus impresario P.T. Barnum."
And this little, but mighty, micro-dwarf tomato puts on a showing cluster of blooms and fruit for sure. It stands (or on a hydroponic Tower Garden drapes downward) approximately 8". It is a determine tomato variety, so it will grow to about that height and stop.
Tom Thumb Micro Dwarf Cherry Tomato (also known as Tiny Tom Cherry Tomato) typically produces multiple blossoms set at the top of the plant and each blossom cluster has 5-7 blossoms. If growing indoors or out, we recommend hand pollinating (lightly tap stem near bud set) to produce 3/4"-1" round cherry tomatoes. We recommend planting marigold near this little guy. The parent plant of this seed stock, in particular, were grown hydroponically, so they have adapted to these growing conditions (
but can be grown in soil as well) and as a result are ideal for a hydroponic, aeroponic, or aquaponic systems like the vertical garden Tower Garden in the upper sections or especially the Aerogardens* or Veritable Garden.
The Tom Thumb Micro Dwarf Cherry Tomato makes a colorful "pop" of color to any salad and looks and tastes great alongside other favorites like Jochalos.
