Ruby Crush is blazing a new trail in the Tomato world – the first ever Grape Determinate type! It works in a container, it shines in the field, and the sugary-acid balanced fruits resist cracking. Compact plants are strong with good leaf cover to prevent sun damage and can be grown with minimal support (60 cm /2 ft high fence trellising or standard tomato cage). Fruit are solid, oval, and weigh about 15 grams (1/2 oz) each. Determinate.

Planting Instructions

Start seed indoors 6 – 8 weeks before transplanting out to the garden. Cover seeds with 1/2 cm (1/4 in) of soil. Firm soil over seed. Keep moist but not waterlogged. To germinate maintain a soil temperature of 24 C (75 F). Seed should germinate in 6 – 10 days. Once seeds have sprouted, 14 – 16 hours of light per day is essential. Once plants have reached 12 cm (5 in) transplant to 6 cm (3 in) peat pots. Place the root ball at the bottom of the pot, filling pot with soil will ensure better root development along the stem. Plants will develop better with a growing temperature of 17 C (62 F) until transplanting out. Fertilize weekly with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong root development. Do not transplant out till night temperatures are warm.
