57 days from setting out transplants. Indeterminate.
Early Girl has been a favorite slicer for decades, and no wonder. It's the earliest, as you might imagine from its name, but it's also frequently the last tomato to stop bearing at the end of the season! And these fruits are meaty, aromatic, and so flavorful!
You simply can't find a better slicing tomato than Early Girl. These 4- to 6-ounce fruits are ready in just under 2 months -- red-skinned, smooth, and absolutely delectable! They are filled with tangy juice, and have an old-fashioned, rich tomato tang that imparts more flavor than many modern varieties can. Scrumptious!
The indeterminate plants are very heavy-bearing and vigorous, with great resistance to Verticillium Wilt, Fusarium Wilt Races 1 and 2. Cage or stake them to support their bounty over their long season; they will just keep growing and setting new fruits all summer long!
Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.
