Wholesale Plum Tomato Seeds - How to Get the Most Out of Your Money and Time
Plum tomato plants, whether you plant them in a garden or in a container, make a great snack or side dish. And when you can tastefully decorate them with fresh herbs and a few fragrant flowers you'll have the best of both worlds. They're easy to grow and very forgiving when you mess up. Plus they taste fantastic. I'm going to tell you about how to get the best yield from your garden.
First, you need to know that Plum tomato fruit has relatively small berries. The smallest of these berries are the umbels, or blossoms, that provide the most flavor. If you're growing a tomato tree (which is the most common) then you should be able to harvest three umbels per year. Some varieties of Plum tomato plants may be able to produce more, but I've never had good success growing these in larger harvests. They're simply too small.
Next, you should get the correct Plum tomato seed. There's a huge amount of variety in the quality, shape, size, weight, and color among the various Plum tomato seeds out there. Don't worry if you can't get them at a seed store - there are online seed companies that will send them to you, and they'll be delivered right to your door. Just make sure to order them according to their flower height. That way you won't wind up paying extra for seeds you don't need.
Now that you've got the seeds, you need to germinate them. This can take several days, so plan ahead accordingly. One of the easiest ways to do this is to place the seeds on paper towels in the refrigerator before you put them in the pot. You can also place them on the hot water to germinate, but I find it works best to leave the water on the seeds. Just be careful not to burn yourself!
Once you've got the seeds, you're ready for your first growing season. Your plant will need to go through a period of "breakage" in the growing season, which is the time where the plants' fruit starts to appear. The process of breaking up your plants' fruits (known as blossom) is what causes the seeds to spread out and look larger than usual. It's also why the tomatoes grow big in quantity at the end of summer. It's all part of the natural process.
Once the growing season is over, it's time to put the seeds back into the earth. Make sure they're planted in soil that's not too rich in nutrients (heavy clay) because it can hinder the growth of your tomatoes. Tomatoes need lots of sunshine and moisture so they can thrive. You can either purchase seeds or grow them yourself from start to finish by growing your own garden. This way you'll know exactly when to plant them next year, and if you have any problems, you can simply replant them.
If you want some help with growing seeds, there are a few web sites that offer advice and assistance. There are many seed companies online that offer seeds at wholesale prices, making it easy to get started. Seed companies or nurseries also sell wholesale Plum tomato seeds to help get your started, but the better sources are nurseries that specialize in raising and selling the fruit. These nurseries are more likely to be fully dedicated to growing and selling wholesale Plum tomatoes, as well as other tomato varieties. This way you can be sure you're getting fresh, quality seeds and plants. You don't want to take any chances with these.
When choosing your tomato seeds, it's important to find the ones that are the best for your climate. Some types of Plum tomatoes produce berries and these are best for climates that go from full to sub-tropical throughout the year. Other varieties, like the Cherry tomato or the Grapefruit seeds, can be grown in tropical or subtropical climates. The right seeds will help ensure you produce the largest amount of delicious fresh produce possible, no matter where you live. Now it's up to you to get started and start planting.
