Tomatoes are native to South America, and although Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing them to the U.S., they were not widely cultivated here until after the 1830s. There are two types of tomato plants. The Indeterminate plant have fruits that ripen at staggered times throughout the growing season. These tomato plants continue to grow all season, so this variety should be staked. The Determinate tomato has its tomatoes all ripen within a 3 to 4 week time span. These plants do not continue to grow and are well suited for containers or small spaces. 

Approximately 160,000 seeds per lb. 1/8 oz. is needed for a 100 foot row, 2 lb. per acre.
