The Oregon Spring grows well in colder regions and is considered an open-pollinated version with very few seeds. It will grow to between seven and eight ounces but it will do so in only about 52 days similar to the Early Girl we mentioned. Solar Fire tomatoes are very heat tolerant and hybrid. They produce tomatoes that are approximately seven to 10 ounces and they will mature in about 72 days. They are also very disease resistant and therefore will survive in harsher conditions. The Stupice tomato is from Czechoslovakia and therefore very good at handling the cold.

The Green Zebra is only about three ounces but it will taste tangy and sweet. They never change color from green and are considered an indeterminate heirloom. Next is a plant called the Husky Gold. They grow about four feet and are considered an indeterminate hybrid dwarf. Their fruit is a dark gold and about eight ounces in size. They are grown to full maturity in about 70 days. The Lemon Yellow fruit is actually bright yellow and is considered a disease resistant hybrid, indeterminate plant. It takes about 72 days to grow a plant that is approximately seven ounces in weight.

Now you lay the plant down on its side in the trench and add soil. Bury the plant all the way to that leaf cluster and make sure you have about two or three inches of soil on top of the root system. You want to pack the soil down firmly but not too firmly so the plant doesn’t break. Now you’ll want something known as a starter solution.
