  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    Popular with many gardeners (and their children) for its extra sweet, juicy fruits, which are a golden orange colour. These thin-skinned cherry tomatoes are produced in heavily laden trusses in a crop that appears over a long period throughout the summer - or even well into autumn if grown in a greenhouse. Showing a good resistance to disease, it makes a great addition to the salad bowl and is an excellent source of vitamin C and lycopene.

  • 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 them into greenhouse borders or growbags, or harden them off and them plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot. Tie them onto supports, pinch out the side shoots and keep them well-watered. Feed weekly once the flowers form. Keep water levels in the soil consistent to prevent blossom end rot and split fruit - increasing water in hot spells and reducing it in cool weather to keep the soil constantly damp.

  • Sow: January-April

  • Harvest: July-October

  • Approximate quantity: 10 seeds.
