If you’ve ever grown a tomato variety from breeder Karen Olivier of Northern Gardener in Canada, you won’t be disappointed! So far, every tomato that I’ve grown from Karen O. has been a taste sensation! Not only did they taste incredible, but they were also some of the prettiest tomatoes that I’d seen.
Ruby Slippers is a variety from her "Short and Sweet Series." Fruits are small, stripped cherries with red skin and golden-yellow striping. The interior flesh is red. I would describe the flavour as sweet, mildly acidic, juicy and with great tomato flavour.
Plants will grow to a height of 2 to 3 feet. If grown in a smaller container, you may be able to contain them to a height of 1.5 feet. Perfect for a container garden, grow bag or large pot.
Start tomato seeds indoors a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your planting area.
Tomatoes grow best in full sun and require consistent moisture in order to avoid blossom end rot.
Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed. Space your plants at least 2 to 3 feet apart, depending on how well you stake them. Stay on top of removing sucker stems.
Plants are semi-indeterminate and require some staking or support.
Days to Maturity: 70 to 75
Packet: 10 seeds

Shipping is calculated at the time of order and is based on the number of seed packets per order. All packages are shipped through Canada Post, and pricing for packages containing seeds are the same for addresses across Canada.
Larger items are calculated by weight and destination and will vary by province.
US seed orders are made at the buyer’s own risk, and we cannot guarantee delivery. We will receive and ship orders but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs, which is the reason for this non-guarantee. Unfortunately, I do not offer phytosanitary certificates, so if the seeds are confiscated or destroyed at the border, your order will not be refunded or reissued.
Non-seed orders are calculated by weight and destination and vary by state.
We cannot ship orders outside of North America.
