    This new cherry tomato produces its bite-sized fruits in generous trusses, which can be picked from midsummer onwards. Noted for their high sugar content, the fruits are sweet, but the flavour is well balanced with a slight tang. Perfect in pots, it is a cordon type, which can either be grown on the patio (after frost) or in the greenhouse.

  • 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.
