150 from seed. You can get 85 from the transplant, I understand. They should be about like a normal 85-day tomato, with regard to maturity, granted, it's still fairly late.

150 days from now is November 19th.

If you want fruit on August 1st, transplant on May 8th, and start your seeds on March 3rd.

I credit Alexa (Amazon's virtual assistant) for doing the math. I can just ask, 'What's 85 days before August 1st?' and such.

Where did you buy the seeds? Does it just grow slow? I always like to experiment and would be able to start when it was too hot.

I was thinking of using one of those 4 shelf mini greenhouse with some added height and just a top chicken wire to let them sprawl from the top.Plant in the ground with the other shelves removed.
You remove the lower branches and grow it like one of those cat in the hat trees.

I started the seeds 4 days ago and they are starting to pop.
The packet said 77% germination rate.
I only started 5 seeds and 4 came up.
