Default My dwarf tomatoes seedlings

I HATE when people say “trust me”, and when they say “cute”, but aren’t these the cutest tomato seedlings ever?

All Dwarf project.

Absolutely yes! Just love those sturdy little tree trunk stems and rugose foliage. Hope they do really well for you.

Yes they are! I have a couple of dwarf varieties this year Uluru Ochre and Dwarf Confetti, they look like adorable stocky miniatures next to my indeterminate seedlings. I do have a question for anyone that knows. Are dwarf tomatoes determinate or indeterminate? Or can they be either depending on the variety?

I believe it depends on variety, that most are indeterminate, and that some are "semis determinate". I also see the term "tree-form" used to describe growth characteristics, at least on the Victory seeds website.

It's mentioned here

Thanks so much! I have been wondering about that for a while. I tried google but didn't find much info.
