Looking for a container tomato plant that won’t take over your entire patio or deck? Lizzano is a well-behaved, compact variety that is ideal for hanging or growing in small spaces. Very hardy plant resists late blight, will produce bright red, 1-inch tomatoes throughout the season. A 2011 All-America Selections winner.

This packet yields approximately 8 - 10 plants when started indoors.

5-10 days

A group of
3 seeds

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
