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

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

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

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!

by

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!

Disturbingly productive

by

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.

Prolific Favorite!

by

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.

Highly productive tomato

by

I’ve grown these tomatoes for years. I first few them in zone 9 in southern CA, did amazing! I grew them again once I moved to TN zone 7b and they grew amazing here too. I even used old seeds and they still germinated very well. They performed the best out of all the tomato varieties I grew, and I remember them doing that in the past as well. They produce so well I almost can’t keep up. They even withstood our first frost when all the other tomato varieties didn’t make it, they kept going! I will be growing this variety every year now, it’s a keeper!

Every year

by

Years ago bought transplants, been growing from saved seeds since. great producer of candy tomatoes

My Choice for "Cherry"

by

Last season my first attempt at seeding and growing anything, ever and these were a WINNER. Along w/ 'Italian Heirloom' and a non-SSE cherry tomato, I started 'Mex. Midg.' from seed and transplanted outside after frost (Zone 5b). I had 2 of these plants going in raised beds and 1 plant going in a container. All of them produced incredibly. I had fresh tomatoes as early as July 10th and by July 20th 2 of the 3 plants were more than 8 ft tall! They continued to fruit well into October.

Very productive but flavor just okay

by

Although the Mexico Midget tomato was very productive, I will not be growing these again. The tomatoes are sweet, but also have a somewhat strong acidity that I do not like, nor did my family. The plant also shoots suckers off like crazy and tries to turn into a bush much more so than other cherry varieties I've grown and really is a pain to manage. It held up somewhat decently to disease and pests, but was hit harder than my other varieties. If you don't like tomato acidity, I'd skip this one.

Intense tomato flavor!

by

Tried them this summer for the first time. Just tasted the first couple yesterday. Intensely tomatoey flavor!!! Fast growing. This and Sun Sugar now rank as my two favorite cherry tomatoes!

A Definite Winner!

by

Very easy to grow. Lots of tomatoes. The perfect salad tomato without cutting. Just barely bite size.

Taste wonderful broiled with other vegetables in the toaster oven with salt, pepper, and a little olive oil. Broil until the tomatoes begin to burst. Intense wonderful flavor.

Grown on my deck in a one gallon grow bag. Water daily for just a couple of minutes. Fertilize weekly. Don't grow too tall. A 6 foot bamboo stake and a tomato cage works great.
