The giant German Johnson Tomatoes come from a long lineage of German Mennonite farms in North Carolina, where these delicious fruits flourished in the summertime heat and humidity to provide excellent texture and flavor to many of their foods and meals. And now, these tomatoes are accessible to many growers across the country!

These tomato plants grow anywhere from 4-6 ft., with some reaching as tall as 8 ft! You'll see plenty of these

    • What You'll Need

      Soil and Tray Method

      Seed Starting Supplies 
    • Plant your Seeds

      1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
      2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
      3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
        You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
    • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

      5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

      6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
