Description – Grow under glass for an extra early crop of sweet yellow cherry tomatoes or plant in a sunny spot in the garden for guaranteed outdoor cropping before cold weather sets in. Each fruit weighs up to 20g, offering high sweetness, a juicy texture and balanced flavour the ideal snacking tomato! Eat straight off the vine, roast in oil and balsamic vinegar, or simply add to salads.
Sowing – Set seed in pre-watered pots or trays of free-draining compost and cover with 5mm (1/5in) compost or vermiculite. Do not water in. Place in a propagator or clear polythene bag at 18-21C (65-70F). Remove lids/bags after germination, which takes 7-10 days.
Growing – Transplant tray seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots once large enough to handle. Grow on indoors until around 20cm (8in) tall and/or all frost risk has passed. Plant outside 45cm (18in) apart, or set 3 plants per grow bag. Support plants with canes and remove side shoots for the best yields. Never allow soils/compost to dry out and feed regularly once the first truss has set.
Harvest – July to September
