Originally offered by Oscar Will in 1937, Bison Tomato dwarf determinate plants require no staking or pruning and produce deep red fruits even in cold weather. Produces up to 40 pounds of tomatoes from a single plant! (65-75 days)
Start seed indoors 4 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Seeds are covered only slightly to allow light, which sometimes assists germination. Keep the soil evenly moist. Seed trays are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3 to 10 days, depending on temperature, moisture, etc.
Move seedlings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window or under a grow light. After the last frost, transplant them into the garden and space 2 to 3 feet apart.
