Tiny Tim Tomatoes
Tiny Tim tomatoes are a fantastic choice for Tower Gardeners and an even better choice for indoor Tower Gardeners.
Tiny Tim Tomatoes are a variety of cherry tomatoes known for their small size. They are a dwarf, determinate variety which makes them well-suited for growing in small spaces, especially indoors. The tomatoes themselves are usually less than 1 inch in diameter but the plants are usually between 12-18″ tall. They produce a large amount of fruit in a small amount of space. When growing conditions are optimal, they will have incredible yields of fruit that often outweigh the plant 3:1!

How many Tiny Tim plants can I grow per Tower Garden?
Due to their compact nature, you could grow one in each regular growing port. However, keep an eye on your reservoir as you will go through a lot of water when they start to produce. We do not recommend growing them in the baby greens growing pots.
