About Banded Amazon

‘Banded Amazon’ is a beautiful, dwarf-type variety developed by ‘J&L Gardens Seeds’. Determinate, regular leaf and compact plant, about 2 1/2 feet tall, produces heavy yield of 8-10 oz., beautiful mahogany-red fruits with dark green striping and delicious, rich flavors. Very meaty, dense flesh with very few seeds. Great for container growing.

      Hi Don, yes, they should grow well in your area. According to the breeder, first, ripe fruit can be harvested about 65 days after transplant. If you will start your seeds early and then plant young plants early (paying attention to weather), you should get a good harvest. A good way to speed up ripening is also to prune tomato plants, leaving only 2-3 main steams. Fruits will grow bigger and earlier.
