Sale price$4.50

Cherry tomato plants are similar in appearance to regular tomato plants, but they tend to be smaller and more compact. They typically grow to a height of 3-6 feet (0.9-1.8 meters) and have a bushy growth habit. The leaves are medium-sized and have a serrated edge. The plant produces small yellow flowers that develop into clusters of cherry-sized tomatoes. The fruit of the cherry tomato plant is the cherry tomato itself. Cherry tomatoes are small, round or oval-shaped tomatoes that are typically 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) in diameter. They come in a variety of colors, including red, yellow, orange, and even black. The flesh of cherry tomatoes is juicy and sweet, with a slightly tart flavour.

Tips for growing Cherry Tomatoes:

1- Provide ample sunlight: Cherry tomatoes need at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day to thrive. Choose a sunny spot in your garden or use containers that can be moved to follow the sun. Transplant your seedlings outdoors once they have developed a few sets of true leaves. Wait for nights to reach 10 degrees before planting, as Tomatoes can be very sensitive to cold temperatures and cold winds.

2- Prepare the soil: Cherry tomatoes prefer well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure before planting to improve its fertility and drainage.

3- Plant properly: Dig a hole deep enough to bury the tomato seedling up to its first set of leaves. This encourages the plant to develop a strong root system. Space the plants about 2-3 feet apart to allow for air circulation.

4- Water consistently: Cherry tomatoes need regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Water at the base of the plant to prevent fungal diseases.

5- Support the plants: Most cherry tomato varieties benefit from some form of support, such as stakes, cages, or trellises. This helps keep the plants upright and prevents the fruit from touching the ground, reducing the risk of rot and disease.

6- Mulch the soil: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as straw or wood chips, around the base of the plants. This helps conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

7- Fertilize appropriately: Cherry tomatoes are heavy feeders and benefit from regular fertilization. Use a balanced fertilizer or incorporate slow-release organic fertilizers into the soil before planting. Avoid excessive nitrogen, as it can promote leafy growth at the expense of fruit production.

8- Prune and pinch: Depending on the variety, you may need to prune or pinch off suckers (side shoots) that develop in the leaf axils. This helps redirect energy to fruit production and improves air circulation.

9- Harvest at the right time: Cherry tomatoes are ready to harvest when they have reached their full colour and are firm but slightly soft to the touch. Gently twist or cut the fruit from the vine to avoid damaging the plant.
