Loutet Tomato Varieties!

This year we’ve gone bananas with our tomato seedlings!  We have so many varieties available, our neighbour Trixi had the wonderful suggestion to make this list available for anyone who wants to learn about their plant or decide what they want to grow before the market!  

Most varieties are VINE or INDETERMINATE, which means they can grow quite tall and will produce over the course of the summer.

Some varieties are BUSH or DETERMINATE, which do not grow tall, should be okay with a simple tomato cage or stake, and tend to produce an abundance in a shorter time period.

As always, please feel free to ask me questions about growing tomatoes – I’m always at our markets and LOVE talking about gardening!  Choose a variety that suits your space with a fruit that intrigues you.  All tomato plants love full sun, so find a sunny spot and get growing!

LOUTET FARM GATE SALES ARE ON SATURDAYS, 10am-12pm AT LOUTET FARM.
