Pronounced “Lay-tah”, this is hands down the earliest tomato we have ever grown (and we think it should be called “Earli-ah”). Although developed by the University of Idaho (and named after the Idaho county) it seems to have gained more of a following across the pond in the UK than here in the PNW. This year, like most, we planted out our tomatoes the third week of May. From Latah, we harvested our first basket of tomatoes the last week of June: yes you read that correctly, 5 weeks from 4” pot to ripe fruit! And that is outside in the elements, no tricks other than a remay tunnel to keep the transplants warm at night for the first week or so. That is unheard of in this climate. Real tomato flavor too, bright and juicy. Low bushy determinate plants bear 2-3oz salad size fruits prolifically. Some tendency for green shoulders but, come on... Are you really going to nitpick a 5 week tomato? Perfectly suited for containers as well.
Determinate. 50-60 days. UO
Packet: 30-35 seeds
