Here’s a fun fact: On the ISS, astronauts will grow three sets of Moneymaker tomatoes in the Advanced Plant Habitat (APH), a chamber that has been used to study plant growth in space. One set of the tomatoes will be an immune-compromised mutant, another will be given a hormone that boosts plant defenses, and a third will be a control.
Care: 60 days. Set plants 1½ -2 ½ feet apart if staked or caged in a sunny area after all danger of frost is past.
