Tiny Tim cherry tomato seeds are easy to grow and produce unique dwarf plants. 

This small, tidy, determinate plant with deep green leaves typically grows to 20 - 40 cm (8-16") tall and 17 cm (6 1/2") in diameter. Plant in full sun to maintain dwarf habit. Tiny Tim Heirloom tomato plants will thrive in less sunlight than other varieties, however fruit yields will be less and growth larger and less tidy.

How to Prune Tomatoes 

  1. Once your tomato starts producing its first flower cluster, you are ready to start pruning. 
  2. The sucker located just below the first flower cluster will stay. This will become another stem that will produce leaves and fruit. All other suckers below this sucker can be removed. You can remove suckers by pinching between your thumb nail and index finger or use precession pruners. 
  3. Disinfecting your fingers or pruners between plants will also help reduce the spread of disease and bacteria. Hand sanitizer for your hands or 70% isopropyl alcohol for pruners work well.
  4. Once you see fruit starting to form, leave some suckers to protect the fruit from Sunscald (a sunburn on tomato fruit). 
  5. Once fruit has ripened or has been picked, you can continue the pruning sucker process. Continue this process throughout the growing season.
