Moneymaker Tomato Seeds
[75-80 days] Originally bred in Bristol in the early 1900s, the Moneymaker tomato has been a popular cash crop for farmers for well over a century. The vines produce heavy yields of medium-sized (4-6 oz.), bright-red fruit and perform admirably well in hot weather. The fruits are sweet with just enough bite to let your taste buds know that this, indeed, is a classic tomato.
Although it prefers more heat and humidity than less (it was originally bred as a greenhouse tomato), Moneymaker performs well in outside as well and will set fruit in just about any weather.
Indeterminate. (Needs staking.)
How do you grow Moneymaker tomatoes from seed? You can begin sowing your Moneymarker seeds in the second week of March. The germination cycle will have completed in 7 to 14 days and ready to transplant 4 weeks later. Your tomato crop will take about 16 weeks after the germination to mature ready for harvest.
Why are my Moneymaker plants flowering but not producing tomatoes? If your Moneymaker tomatoes aren't producing tomatoes then they may need help with pollination more so if you have restricted insect access to the polytunnel or greenhouse.
How many tomatoes does each Moneymaker plant produce? Moneymaker tomatoes can grow up to 9cm in size and the plant can reach heights of up to 5 feet. Your Moneymaker plant will produce glowing red fruits packed with a sweet flavour and smooth skin. Each plant produces around 200 tomatoes per season.
