Above is what a tomato plant looks like when it first sprouts. In the germination room at the KC Irving Centre, which provides ideal germinating conditions for seeds, the time it took for the tomato seeds to begin sprouting and break ground was about a week. These first leaves are their seed leaves, or cotyledons.

As the seedlings continue to grow they develop their “true” leaves which vary depending on the variety of tomato.

As the tomato seedlings continue to grow they continue to sprout up, but they also grow new sets of leaves and bush out.

Believe it or not, this little guy will eventually grow to be several feet tall and produce pounds worth of tomatoes
