Reisetomate failed to grow
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 1.0

What are the pros? Started strong.

What are the cons? Never had a chance to try.


I had a bad experience trying to start these because I trusted an organic potting mix after initially starting seeds. They were thriving in my organic peat pots & starter soil. When they reached about 2"-3" I added an organic mix purchased at WalMart. At first things went well, but I began to notice they ceased to gain height. Then little mushrooms began to grow everywhere. The roots rotted completely & all seedlings died. I disposed of everything in the trash. Feared to try composting. The seeds all sprouted & seemed very healthy until the organic mix. Also planted Black Vernissage (freebie) that suffered same fate. Still have some Vernissage seeds & will try next year. Thinking about trying Reisetomate again. This floored me. Never had it happen before & was too far along in season to try from seed again. Was it the mushrooms? Could other fungus in the mix be the culprit?
