Scarlet, cherry-sized tomatoes produce long clusters right up to frost of 100 or more super-sweet cherry tomatoes, weighing about 25g (1 oz.) each and measuring 1" in diameter. Cherry tomatoes bursting with sugary flavour. The scarlet, cherry-sized fruits are produced in long pendulous clusters and are extra-high in Vitamin C. Plants bear fruits throughout the season. Requires canes/staking or caging.
Unique salad type with amazingly high yields of supersweet 1-inch fruit with higher content of Vitamin C than any other tomato. Indeterminate plants bear until frost, each branch producing more than 100 fruits. Disease resistant.
- For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.
- For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per grow bag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.
When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
Maturity: 65 Days
Pick as soon as the fruits are ripe, this also encourages the production of more fruit. Harvest all the fruit as soon as frost threatens and ripen on a window sill.
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
