Tumbling Tom Red Tomato

The Tumbling Tom Red Tomato is a really fun fruit to grow. This hanging type variety produces large yields of small red cocktail size tomatoes that cascade down its vines. These are great for ornamentals as well as a great addition to include in your diet.

Planting/Harvesting:

  • Plant in mid spring or after the last frost.
  • Keep this plant at least 60cm off the ground, perfect for window sills or patios.
  • Like any tomato, full sun is required.
  • Harvest 10-14 weeks from sowing the seed.

*Rootbox fun facts:

- The Guinness World Record for most tomatoes harvested from a single plant over one year weighed 522.464 kg (1151.84 lbs), with 32,194 tomatoes harvested between May 2005 and April 2006. The tomato plant was at the Epcot Science project at Walt Disney World Company, Florida, USA.

-The biggest tomato fight in the world happens each year in the small Spanish town of Buñol. The festival called La Tomatina, involves some 40,000 people throwing 150,000 tomatoes at each other.  * Tomatoes are meant to be grown, not thrown – Rootbox, 2018
