      Hi Zephyr Grace, the best time to sow tomato seeds is about 6-8 weeks before planting young plants out. The growing season in your area starts in mid-March, so seeds should be sown indoors between January 18 and February 1.

      Hi Mary, they turn red on the bottom end when ripe. The best way to check is to touch them and gently push them with your finger. They are ripe when the flesh is soft.

    Why do the leaves fold and feel crinkled on the edges of my Culinary Dancing with Smurfs Tomatoes?
    I have them in a container with automatic water supply

      Hi Debbie, if you have photos of your plants please send them to dorota@worldtomatosociety.com, we will try to help you. Without photos, it's hard to say what's causing it.
