There are hundreds of different varieties, sizes and colours so you won’t be spoilt for choice. This is a classic, reliable and tasty large cherry tomato that can be grown under cover or outside. If you can keep it in a frost-free place it’s possible to be picking tomatoes all the way to November.
Another good thing about this variety is that all the fruit ripen on the vine at the same time, so you cut the stem and put the whole lot in the oven for roasting. Sow seeds this month inside or under cover in seed trays. Once they’ve germinated and grown their first set of true leaves, prick the individual plants out into small pots or modules.
Then, pot them up into larger size pots once their roots fill the existing pot. However, don’t be tempted to plant them outside until all risk of frost has passed. For best results water regularly and feed with high potassium fertiliser weekly once the plant starts to flower.
