Mini-growhouse protects tomato transplants from cold temperatures and chilly winds, so you can set plants out in the garden weeks earlier. You’ll be amazed at how much faster plants grow — which means an earlier harvest of your first juicy fruits! Set it up in seconds: Release the toggles and it pops open, ready to place over plants. We made it extra large — 18" in diameter and 28" high — so you can leave it in place to protect plants longer. The top is made from mesh to allow warm air to escape, preventing overheating, and it also lets water in. When the weather warms up, you can unzip the top and leave it open for even better ventilation. Also good for peppers, eggplants and other heat-loving plants. Made from durable, reinforced greenhouse fabric. Flattens for easy off-season storage.

Does not last more than one season

Comments about : Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator:
If I had reviewed this item last year, when I first bought it, it would have been a positive review. I invested in quite a few last season and was happy with them then. However, just be warned that these accelerators do not last more than one season. I carefully stored mine over the winter and they literally fell apart when I opened them for this season. All of them, whatever shape. One was still new in the bag, and when I opened the bag, it had disintegrated. I am now looking for the old, clear type that they used to sell instead of these with the white netting like finish.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My go to plant cover.

I would not get red tomatoes without these. Works great with stacking tomatoe ladders.

I think this item is wonderful. It not only protects young seedlings from heavy rainfall, but also established plants from very-cold temperatures either in the beginning of the growing season or toward the end of it.
Love the Pop-up Tomato Accelerator!

I just recently received my accelerators. I used them to cover my pepper plants for the cooler nights. Slid them right down over the cages, and my peppers were protected, and continued ripening wonderfully!

I know it is designed for tomatoes, but I have found that these are great butterfly cages, too. I cover fennel that have caterpillar eggs and watch them grow into butterflies. Wasps can't disturb the cats feasting on the fennel. I have been pretty successful and have recommended these to other butterfly enthusiasts. I use the earth staples and "staple" all around the cages. When the butterflies appear, I just unzip and let them go. I have also used these to protect new plants because I have armadillos that love to uproot new plants.
