Description

Distinctively sweet 2” grape tomatoes. Great right off the vine, Suitable for large conatiners.Just as sweet and flavorful as cherry tomatoes but oblong in shape, grape tomatoes are a bite-size favorite for salads and snacking. Johnny’s grape tomatoes have been carefully selected for flavor, texture, tenderness, appearance, and productivity, in shades of red, pink, orange, and yellow, including varieties from our own traditional breeding program. A good choice for containers, Moby Grape produces two-inch fruits all summer long. Delicious off the vine, tossed in Caprese salad, or skewered and grilled, a must-have for the kitchen garden.

Dandelions are another good plant to have in your tomato patch believe it or not. Tomatoes are susceptible to fusarium wilt, which is a soil borne fungal disease and dandelions can help keep this in check.Plant tomatoes along side of radishes, spinach, lettuce and turnips to help shade them from the hot sun. Though there is some debate, cabbage and cauliflower may benefit from having tomatoes close because they discourage flea beetles from nibbling. Some sources will contend that planting cabbage with tomatoes will hinder the growth of the tomatoes. Most gardening requires some trial and error to figure out what works best for your environment. Tomatoes are also helpful in repelling asparagus beetles.Good plants to pair with tomatoes are basil, carrots, chamomile and marigolds but keep them separate from fennel and potatoes.
