When individuals new to vegetable gardening ask for tomato plant recommendations, we often steer them toward cherry tomatoes because of their shorter maturation period and prolific results. 'Juliet' is on the edge of cherry tomatoes, producing clusters of 12 - 18 red, firm-skinned oblong fruits that are one to two ounces each. Larger than grape tomatoes, smaller than Romas, 'Juliet' tomatoes are great eaten fresh or cooked. 

One rule of thumb is to plant tomato starts deep, leaving only two sets of leaves above ground, even if it means stripping off bottom leaves on a particularly leggy start, or actually laying it at an angle with just two sets of leaves above ground. All the little hairs along the stem will become roots, providing that much more water and nourishment to the plant. You'll also want to install your support, be it a cage, trellis, or some other structure, at the time of transplanting so the roots aren't damaged later on. 'Juliet' is indeterminate with vines growing four to six feet tall. 

Water tomatoes deeply and only when the soil is dry to encourage flower and fruit production. One trick to getting water down to the roots and not on the leaves is to cut the bottom off a 16-oz. to liter-size plastic bottle, throw away the cap, then partially bury the cap end of the bottle into the ground close to the tomato start. Angle it slightly so you can water into the bottle.
