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

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost. Provide adequate light to produce sturdy plants.

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 unripe 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.
