What do you get when you mix up tomato, chile pepper, onion, garlic, salt, cilantro, and cumin? A delicious salsa roja, or spicy red sauce, great for dipping hot, salty, tortilla chips into and munching. To ensure that this salsa tastes fantástico, you need to use the best tomatoes you can find–sweet, acidic, with less seeds, and little to no juice. Lucky for you, Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant, also known as Solanum lycopersicum 'Fresh Salsa', has them. Producing a high yield of meaty, 4-5 oz, plump, scarlet Roma tomatoes in 65 to 75 days, this bushy, determinate hybrid’s fruit can be eaten fresh off the vine, canned, or frozen. Even salsas made with its plum tomatoes can be saved for later use by canning/freezing. 

Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant Care  

To satisfy Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant’s affinity for light, plant it in full sun after the last threat of frost has passed in spring.  Make sure that its soil is loamy, moist, and well draining. Amend the soil with peat moss/coco coir if needed to obtain an ideal pH of 6.2 to 6.8. To reduce moisture loss and increase nutrients, mulch with compost. Space plants 24 to 26 inches apart. Stake or cage this plant to support the stems and protect it from extreme wind and weather.

Growing Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant 

Growing to a maximum height of 4-5 feet and spread of 24-36 inches, Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant matures in 65-75 days. Cold hardy in zones 9 to 12, plant this tomato after spring’s last frost. Add a cage or grow stake to support its vertical growth. If grown inside, provide this vine with at least 8 hours of bright direct sunlight or 12 hours beneath grow lights. To discourage disease, remove its lowest set of leaves.

Suitable for growing in containers, plant Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant in an 18-inch pot. If necessary, repot this tomato into a new container that is twice the size of the original pot. Plant en masse in raised beds or as a specimen in a container. In a thriller-spiller-filler combination, this hybrid is best utilized as a thriller. 

Watering Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant 

To produce an abundant amount of delicious fruit, Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant needs about 1 to 2 inches of water per week. To keep its soil constantly moist, water regularly, preferably during the early morning hours. Also, water only the soil and not this hybrid’s leaves. Extended periods of wet foliage may encourage fungal disease. 

Feeding Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant 

To produce a lot of fruit, Fresh Salsa Tomato Plant needs a lot of nutrients. When planting during the spring, provide this plant with a balanced tomato fertilizer. After that, apply a fertilizer with less nitrogen than phosphorus/potassium such as a 5-10-10 NPK formula two times per month.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
