£2.00

Cute, super short and perfectly formed – probably the world’s tiniest tomato plant.

Fruit type: small, round

Description

Solanum lycopersicum

Cute, super short and perfectly formed – that just about sums up Micro Tom.

Released in 1989 by the University of Florida, this variety is often touted as the world’s tiniest tomato plant. The plants are about 8cm in height, and can be grown in window boxes, small troughs and pots. The plants fit inside the smallest of cold frames, and they are worth a try outdoors.

The small fruit turn red as they mature, and though the flavour isn’t the best, it is decent enough to give Micro Tom a try. Your kids will love them!

Determinate (miniature bush) growth habit.
