This variety is amazing for those with a short cold summer, or for growing outside of growing season. This variety tolerates frost, cold and rainfall.
A perfect variety for those with a very short growing season!
Description: These are FRESH harvested seeds from our Siberian Tomatoes, grown outdoors in Iceland.
I have been growing several varieties of cold climate tomatoes and selecting for the one that grows best at my arctic location! I call my variety "the Icelandic Red". Because this variety grows in Iceland, it is an excellent tomato for places like Ireland, Scotland, England, Scandinavia, Canada, Maine or Alaska!
They survive snow fall, minor frosts (down to -4°C/ 25°F) if covered with fleece, and fruited under day temperatures around 13°C (55°C), and night temperatures around 8°C (45°F).
Germination: Seeds are easy to germinate. Just lay them over a tray filled with potting soil, barely cover the seed, moist the soil, and set the tray in a warm location. Tomato seedlings need lots of direct sunlight to grow, and love a rich soil, full with compost. Order quickly, as I have little seed left to sell.

Growing habit, and Fruit: semi-indeterminate, potato-leaf. Fruits are medium size, very juicy, and red colored and medium size.
I have sub-types adapted more to frost hardiness (down to -8ºC /18ºF), and sub-types adapted more to set fruit in cold conditions, in a very short growing season. Please let me know of your climate and I can send you the best subtype for you.
I also have many other of the cold hardy well-known tomato varieties, such as Glacier, Coldset, Subartic Plenty, etc... Ask!
