If you're looking for a meaty, flavourful red slicing tomato with good acidity that ripens uber early in a cool climate and does great in a pot, look no further than 'Sophie's Choice.'
I've been growing this Canadian heirloom on an off or decades and it has been reliable and sturdy in a range of environments from a rooftop deck in the sky to a hot and dry concrete parking pad and a backyard raised bed. Whats more, it's disease resistant and doesn't demand staking or too much pampering. Great for sandwiches, salads, and sauce!
Special Notes: Compact determinate. Very early. 55 days. OP. Excellent for containers, but equally great in the ground. No less than 20 seed per packet.
Seed Starting and Growing: Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.
About You Grow Girl Seeds:
All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
