OUR FLAGSHIP MINIMATER RELEASE! This a a very special micro-dwarf tomato crafted to change the perception of these tiny tomato plants. Look for future releases under the Minimater moniker.
As refined and classic as you might expect, and named after my wife, Laura #5 embodies opulence. With a heavy fruit-set of elongated, striped red tomatoes and a smooth sweet tomato sauce flavor on a plant smaller than a foot tall, Laura #5 will become a micro-star!
Laura #5 is the first release under the Minimater line of tomatoes and the first release for Crafted Seed.
Of all the tomato breeding work we have done over the past ten years, it’s the flagship Minimater named for my wife that I am most excited for you to experience.
Laura #5 is a gorgeous approximately 1oz teardrop red tomato with subtle yellow striping that is both a joy to look at and a delight to eat. It possesses an overall sweet flavor with savory undertones reminiscent of rich tomato sauce.
While considered a micro-dwarf, given room to grow, she can reach almost 18” in height and put out several flushes of tomatoes, extending the life and yield of this determinate tomato. Or if it is indoors and small spaces, Laura #5 can shine in a 4-inch pot or occupy a space in your favorite growing system. Gourmet quality tomatoes are no longer limited to the great outdoors. The plant itself is also quite exotic looking compared to most of the commonly available micro-dwarf tomato varieties, sporting robust but frilly intricate leaves on a branchy compact plant. And while it isn’t the fastest fruiting Minimater line scheduled for released, it will still allow you to start harvesting tomatoes by the time regular tomato plants set fruit.
Without a doubt, you should grow Laura #5.
