Large red cherry tomatoes grow in beautiful clusters on long vines. The fruits are over 1" in size with a very sweet flavor. Use fresh for salad and they are also wonderful for canning whole. An excellent choice for beginner gardeners. Drought tolerant and resistant to Fusarium wilt.

Large Red Cherry tomato plants are indeterminate and produce fruit all season. The big plants grow 4'-6' tall and can be caged, staked, or trellised. Grow in full sun and water regularly.

Each packet contains 30 Large Red Cherry Tomato seeds.  Solanum lycopersicum. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, Non-GMO. Harvest in 75 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 60' row with 30 plants. 

Tomato seeds can be started indoors.

Start seeds inside 8 weeks before the last frost date.

Plant seeds 1/4" deep in pots with seedling mix and place on a warm seedling mat or in a warm area that is 70 to 85 degrees with bright light. Tomato seeds prefer relatively warm temperatures to germinate and grow quickly. Seedlings should emerge from the soil in 5-10 days. After 8 weeks, when the outdoor garden soil has warmed, harden off the seedlings and transplant them 24" apart in rich soil and full sun. 

When watering soak the soil to a depth of at least 6" so the soil stays moist but never soggy. Mulching can help to provide uniform moisture, conserve water, and reduce weeds. Feed plants often with fertilizer that is low in nitrogen.

Tomatoes are delicious.

Cherry tomatoes are like little juicy bursts of flavor. Much like other types of tomatoes, they cram a ton of goodness into a small package whether eaten raw, roasted, or caramelized. They're best during the summer picked right off the vine. Grow a couple plants and you’ll always have some on hand for tossing into pasta dishes, making caprese salads, and endless snacking. Cherry tomatoes are the perfect ingredient whenever you want to add sweetness, acidity, and fresh flavor to a dish.

Features.

Heirloom Large Red Cherry tomatoes are big and can grow 1-1/2 - 2" in size. They make great dehydrated or sun-dried tomatoes. They are always delicious freshly sliced for salads and sandwiches. 

Benefits.

Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. Eating of tomatoes and tomato-based products has been linked to improved skin health too.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting tomatoes can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.
