Grow cherry tomatoes in your kitchen, and never run out of fresh tomatoes!

This grow pot comes with heirloom Red Robin seeds. Red Robin (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a determinate cultivar of tomato - that means the plant will grow a few inches tall and then focus all of its energy on producing fruit.

Technical Details:
  • Height: 6.25 inches tall
  • Diameter: 6.25 inches across
  • Capacity: 8 cups of soil (included)

  • Red Robin tomatoes are a dwarf heirloom variety (dating back prior to 1900). The seeds take 50-55 days to grow and start producing cherry tomatoes, and are a heavy producer. Each plant grows from 9 to 12 inches tall and turns out tiny, 1-inch diameter sweet tomatoes.

    These heirloom tomatoes are not hybrid or genetically modified. They have a history to them - generations of people nurtured and handed down these seeds from one family member to another. Unlike other tomato seeds, these heirloom tomatoes will breed true. That means seeds from this planter can be used to grow Red Robin tomatoes in other planters or in your garden.

    This Tomato Growing Pot makes a wonderful gift. It's perfect for housewarmings, going away presents, welcoming new co-workers, graduation, marriage, and other events worth celebrating. Or, you can get it for your own kitchen, and invite guests over to enjoy a meal cooked with fresh, homemade tomato sauce!

    This growpot is made from renewable resources and is naturally biodegradable. It is made from rice hulls mixed with organic pigments and other grain hulls. These natural components give the planter a beautiful texture and one-of-a-kind appearance.

    The Heirloom Tomato pot is very durable and will hold its shape for about 5 years. It can be used indoors or outside, and the pot helps roots breathe easier thanks to microscopic pores that help air circulate.
