Tomato plants should be grown in a warm areas and receive plenty of sunlight,
so choose a sunny spot in your garden. Relocate your tomato plants in
different parts of your garden each year to avoid diseases. Optimum
temperatures for growing tomatoes are between 65 and 85 degrees F. Plant your
seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before setting outside. Use Miracle Gro Seed
Starting Material for best germination results. We have tested other Seed
Starting Mix and experienced poor germination rates. You may have to special
order the Miracle Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix from your nursery, as it is
hard to find it at many of the large home and garden centers. Do not add any
soil, fertilizers, and other chemicals to seed starting material! Do not use
jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too
wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low
germination when using these types of products. When seedlings are 4" tall,
transplant them in larger pots. Plants should be at least 10" tall before
transplanting outdoors. Place plants outdoors in shady area several days
before transplanting outdoors. Shelter the transplants to prevent sunburn,
wilting, and rain damage. Spring planting should occur when soil is warm, at
least 3 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 degrees
F. You can plant early if you use water towers. To prevent branches from
breaking from the weight of tomatoes, use 5 to 6 ft tall cages. To tie plants
to stakes, use soft strips of cloth. Check indeterminate plants regularly, and
pinch off suckers and side branches where leaves join the stems. Plants can grow
1 to 6 ft tall.
Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply mulch and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant. Work the soil thoroughly before planting. Add
well-rotted manure and compost.
Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water
in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest tomatoes when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so
you don't damage the plant. Pick them as they mature to encourage new
fruit to form. Remove any decayed tomatoes from the plant.

I have planted this variety for 4 years. Amazing producer! Never disappointed! They do cling to the vine and are crack resistant, so they are very pretty. Great for snacking or in salads.

Juliet has to be the best indeterminate grape tomatoe in the garden. Never stops and will grows over 7 feet tall. Sweet and juicy and the green ones can be used for dill pickled green tomatoes.

This is an excellent tomato for sun drying, come out as sweet as raisins but with a nice bit of tomato tang and a beautiful color. They seem to be very disease resistant and hold on the vine for a long, long time without rot. The only bummer is that they're a hybrid so seed saving is out.

Its Nov. 6th here in central Kansas and I'm still picking fruits from my Juliet tomato plant. What a great variety. And it has continued to flower and fruit through 104 temperatures, lots of spider mites, and some form of leaf disease. Wow :-)

Amazing yields, very early. They manage to be very flavorful without being terribly juicy, so I use them for cooking as well as fresh. An annual must-have.
