How to grow Maxifort

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Maxifort is thought of as tender, so it is really important to plant out well after your last frost date. The USDA Hardiness Zones typically associated with Maxifort are Zone 3 and Zone 14. Ideally plant in loamy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.5 and 7.5 as Maxifort likes to be in weakly acidic soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Maxifort from seed

Start seeds indoors six weeks before last frost date. Seeds saved from this hybrid variety are not likely to grow true to the parent plant.

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.78 inches (2.0 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 0.78 inches (2.0 cm) between Tomato plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 12°C / 54°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Maxifort about 42 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Maxifort

Plant to the first set of true leaves to promote strong root growth.

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Maxifort is a tender plant.
