But are they under 55 days. Once upon a time a new neighbor ask me how long the growing season was up here. My answer was July 4th and 5th.

Thanks

WI-55

early girl

definitely have established plants by last frost date in a whoop house or something

wall O water canbe used to get earlier crop also

some sweet 100 a grape/cherry tomato is it an indetuminit and it makes more like thousands of tomatoes usualy 6-8 to a stem in an offset branch structure

the WI-55 are a determinate and you get a few a few a ton then done


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

WI-55 is listed at a 75 day... that seems oxymoronic to me?

The best early cherry I've grown is Matt's Wild Cherry.

55 days, vigorous grower. Starts out as the tiniest seedling but is 8'x8' at first frost and pumping out tresses of tiny full flavored cherry tomatoes like there's no tomorrow. Fruit is soft and the skin tears easily but has the flavor of the best full size beefsteak. Very hardy and disease resistant as it's always the last man standing in my hot and humid climate that kills off anything that doesn't deal with blights, fungi and mildews.

It has the added benefit of only needing to be planted but once as it readily reseeds itself year after year.

You should have green houses in your area that sell started plants when the time is right. A couple dozen well cared for plants, plenty of water and staked up good when they grow out of the cage, will produce gobs.

I have done "Cold Set" tomatoes. Supposed to be born to Alaska. They will tolerate a frost and are great producers with good flavor. They won't get bigger than a tennis ball. I, believe, they were the fastest tomato to maturity when I tried them back in 1998 or so.
