  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    Probably the most widely-grown tomato in the country, and deservedly so. A 'cherry' type, with bite-sized fruits, which are perfect for a snack or for popping in the children's lunchboxes, It's one of the most reliable toms you'll ever grow, trouble-free and prolific with long trusses of richly-flavoured sweet red fruits.

  • 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 and pinch out side shoots: keep well-watered and feed weekly once flowers form. Keep water levels in the soil consistent to prevent blossom end rot and split fruit. Increase water in hot spells and reduce in cool weather to keep the soil constantly damp.

  • Sow: January-March

  • Harvest: August-September

  • Approximate quantity: 50 seeds.
