Learn to Grow Tomato, Mexico Midget
Start Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost
Germination: 7-14 Days
Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
Support: Cage, stake, or trellis
You should start your tomato seeds indoors in soil trays or pots about 6 weeks before you plant them outside. Sow the seeds about 1/4 inch deep and wait 7-14 days for them to germinate. As they grow you may need to re-pot them to give their roots space to develop. When all chance of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit you can plant your tomatoes out. Leave around 24-36 inches between the plants. Tomatoes should be grown with some form of support, such as staking, cages, or a trellis. This variety will be mature about 60-70 days after transplanting.

Little firecracker of a tomato!
by Jersey Mike
These little firecrackers pack a punch! Absolutely love these, the kids eat them off the plants like they’re candy. So sweet and so tomatoey. Prolific... you’d think it was a berry bush not a tomato plant!
Not the best bang for your buck fruit wise
by Jason (North Florida)
Germinated well using a wet paper towel in a plastic bag (nearly 100%). My issue is that while they are producing fruit, they require just as much work as say the Italian Heirloom tomatoes and have a significantly less yield. Basically you need have a lot of room to grow a large number of plants to provide enough fruit for just one salad.
Great little tomato
by Jeff (Maryland)
Planted indoors in February, outdoors early May, first fruit by July 4th. Very productive, had continuous fruit all summer, picked ripe ones every few days. Very tasty, best yield of all the tomatoes planted this year.
Will grow again!
Extremely productive, did not suffer from blight when all my other tomato plants did. Excellent flavored small cherry tomatoes for salad or a sun dried tomato snack. Definitely will grow again!
This is the third year these tomatoes have self-seeded and grown to 7+ feet high. They’re populating the neighborhood with the help of our local critters. The tomatoes are delicious, but I’m slightly disturbed by their robustness year after year.
I grew these for the first time (winter sown method) in 2020. I had two plants and both were prolific! I gave two transplants to neighbors who had the same result. Tall and study vines, no pests or diseases, clusters of smaller but sweet snd tasty tomatoes well into September. I’ll grow this one again for sure.
