These succulent cherry tomatoes are sweeter than many of the other varieties, so they are ideal for eating straight from the vine. They are particularly popular with children, and make a tasty (and healthy) treat, but they can also be added to salads. Producing a generous crop on each plant (often up to 6kg), this high yielding variety is also a deserving recipient of the RHS AGM.
- Growing Instructions: Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse borders or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot. Tie in to supports as they grow, keep well-watered and feed weekly once flowers form. Regularly pinch out the sideshoots that form between stem and leaves once they reach about 5cm long to encourage plants to form one central stem with plenty of fruit.
- Sow: January-March
- Harvest: July-October
- Approximate quantity: 10 seeds
