Indeterminate (vine). Days to Maturity: 75-80.
SOWING AND GROWING: Plant 2-3 seeds 1/4″ deep per cell in fertile, humusy, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Money Maker seeds germinate in 5-14 days, transplant best starts to 1 per pot or 24-36 inches apart in the garden.
Before sowing, know whether the seed is determinate or indeterminate, as each will exhibit different habits. Determinate varieties mature to a predetermined size, producing their fruit all at once with only a minor need for staking. Indeterminate varieties grow indefinitely through the season, producing non-stop fruit while requiring heavy support. Money Maker is an indeterminate tomato crop.
HARVESTING: Tomatoes can just as easily be harvested early and ripened indoors by being stored in a paper bag or box along with a banana for its ethylene gas. Ripest tomatoes may be pulled from the vine by hand, while more firm ones should be clipped with shears.
