STAKE IT OUT The next question that many new tomato gardeners have is whether their plants should be staked. You have probably seen tomato plants with stakes and cages when you’ve been out driving before and that’s because these plants need the support. Those tomatoes are heavy after all the plants themselves are not that strong. So when should you stake out your plants? The truth is you should start staking your tomatoes as soon as possible. Right after you’ve planted them get the stakes in the ground.

But what you probably don’t know are what some of those fun colored tomatoes are called. After all, if you’re going to grow them you need to know how to find them and that means you’re going to need to know the names that everyone knows them by. You’ll also need to know why they are good choices to grow in your garden. The Black Krim is an indeterminate plant and it is considered a Russian heirloom. It grows to be approximately 12 ounces and is generally a dark reddish-brown both inside and out.

An openpollinated tomato is cross-pollinated by the other tomatoes that are in the garden along with it. The plants help to pollinate and care for themselves but you will still receive tomatoes that are similar to the ones that cross-pollinated. For example, heirloom tomatoes are popular for doing this. Hybrids are formed when two plants that generally don’t crosspollinate by themselves are crossed. These have been developed after 1945 and typically have more uniform appearance or increased disease resistance.
