Solanum lycopersicum ‘Nova’ are firm, crack resistant tomatoes that perform well in containers. Seeds may be started up to six weeks ahead of time before transplanting, however be certain they are not root bound & do not over water. It’s important to keep the soil just moist enough to prevent it from being dry & consistency is key. Choose a time in the morning, then repeat daily. For a high fruit yield, make sure the soil is rich in phosphorous & avoid too much nitrogen which will produce soft fruits that are susceptible to decay while calcium aides in preventing blossom end rot. This hybrid tomato variety will not disappoint.
