Tiny Tim Tomato
Tiny Tim Tomato
45 days, dwarf — 'For its very small and compact plant size, 'Tiny Tim' is a heavy yielder producing clusters of fine flavored, small, globe-shaped, red colored fruit that are about one-half inch in diameter.
When grown in pots, this variety only grows ten to twelve inches tall and fourteen inches across. It may grow a bit bigger when planted directly in the garden. Can be grown as a potted plant anytime of the year. Good for small gardens, patios, or apartment dwellers. Also well suited for hydroponics cultivation.
Bred by Dr. Albert F. Yeager's breeding program and introduced by the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station in 1945, it was described as, "... a very small fruited type, capable of being matured in a 5-inch pot for purposes of Christmas decorations, and not recommended for field growing." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds, and there are about 100 to 120 seeds per 0.25 gram.
