Details

Meet the world's smallest tomato plant, bred at the University of Florida. The plant only grows 4-8” tall and produces small red cherry tomatoes. Micro Tom is an excellent choice for gardeners with little room, or to grow in a 4-6" pot on the windowsill. These plants are mostly grown as a novelty and for ornamental value, but the tomatoes are certainly edible and have a mild flavor.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
