TOMATO JOHN BAER
Bright red, meaty, sweet, smooth fruits ripen very, very early indeed, and thence over a very long season, and these famous fruits have a good measure of thick tasty flesh and are resistant to splitting. Seedlings are often mis-shapen but make perfectly good plants and fruit is not affected. Historically, this very heavy cropping heirloom tomato was introduced in 1913 as the earliest-fruiting tomato ever grown! (Cordon)
Coverseeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
