HR = High Resistance: The ability of a plant variety to highly restrict the activities of a specific pathogen or insect pest and/or to restrict the symptoms and signs of a
disease, when compared to susceptible varieties. Varieties with high resistance may exhibit some symptoms when specified pathogen or pest pressure is severe. New
and/or atypical strains of the specific pathogen or pest may overcome the resistance.
IR = Intermediate Resistance
The ability of a plant variety to restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit greater range of symptoms compared to varieties
with high resistance. Intermediate Resistant plant varieties will show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar
environmental conditions and/or pest or pathogen pressure.

These indeterminate F1 hybrid tomato varieties are produced in Holland. They should be pruned when grown in a greenhouse. Our technical manual (Item # 9P098) offers tips on their culture and pruning technique. F1 hybrids are grown in a greenhouse. The pollen from one parent is manually transferred to the second parent. The seed from this parent plant is the F1 hybrid you are purchasing. The germination rate of these varieties ranges from 85% to 100%
Due to the US Postal Service practice of irradiating packages,
Hydro-Gardens will not guarantee any seeds sent by the US Mail.
This practice will sterilize the seeds and they will not germinate.
We will still send your order by US Mail but if they do not germinate, they will not be replaced.
If we send by FedEx the guarantee is in place.
