Determinate (60-65 days) Summerjet (1970) Was part of L.G. Denby’s breeding program in the early 1950’s in Summerland, BC, to increase verticillium wilt resistance in commercial tomatoes in the Okanagan. Medium size fruit and fairly early maturing. It is a selection from Vinered x Summerdawn.
Start seeds indoors 6-7 weeks before last frost. Soil temp needs to be between 25-35°C and tomato seedlings must be grown under good lights for 10 to 12 hours a day. Sow 1/4″ deep in a light soil mix; harden off & plant out 24 – 48″ apart, in rich soil, after all danger of frost is over. Tomatoes benefit from staking.
