Glacier Bush Tomato

Glacier will be one your first ripe tomatoes of summer, and one of your last tomatoes in the fall! This tomato sets fruit earlier and in cooler temperatures than other early varieties, and continues to produce throughout the season. Small, 2½" to 3" fruits are the perfect size for salads. Enjoy the sweetness of summer longer than ever!

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60° F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of green tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
