Squak Mt.’s Homegrown Tomato Crop

Our greenhouse team is growing a great crop of tomatoes that thrive here in our area.

Amongst our grafted tomatoes you will find ‘Stupice’ an heirloom variety with 2-3” fruit and ‘Defiant’, which features great flavor and superior disease resistance.  Our grafted tomatoes provide you with a super charged plant that grows more vigorously on specialized root stock. We also have a complete selection of standard (non-grafted toamtoes). View the table below for a complete list of our tomato crop.

NOTE:  Cool season veggie starts (lettuce, kale, etc.) can be selected and planted today.  Warm season veggies (peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.) should not be planted outdoors umprotected until mid May at the earliest.

Our 4″ pot size tomatoes will be displayed for sale around May 1st.  Our gallon and 2 gallon (grafted) tomatoes will be on display around May 8th.

Squak Mt. will have a complete selection of summer edibles for your family’s health and enjoyment.

 

Key for tables:

* Determinate: One big crop, then the tomato is done fruiting.  Vines stop growing when the fruit sets.

** Indeterminate: Multiple crops of fruit. Plant contimues to grow and set fruit all summer.
