I purchased your 4th of July tomato seeds. The plants are green, sturdy, growing. The tomatoes are in clusters like grapes. I'm disappointed in the size of the tomatoes vs. the picture in your catalog. The tomatoes when ripe are, maybe, just a trifle bigger than cherry tomatoes. Is this normal?

The 4th of July Tomato plants should produce fruits that are 4oz. each. If your tomatoes are smaller, it could be due to weather, or it could be because of inadequate moisture. Since it's early in the season, you can expect lots more tomatoes. I'll bet as the plants mature, the fruits will reach their full potential and weigh in at 4 oz. each. Make sure the plants are watered well!
