Description

Gardeners, meet the darling "Cherry" tomato (Solanum lycopersicum). These petite, glossy red fruits are a real treat, offering a burst of sweetness in every bite-sized gem – a cherry on top for any salad or snack.

When aiming for the juiciest harvest, use a premium quality potting mix in your large containers or level up garden beds with a top-notch soil conditioner. Sun-soakers at heart, these toms love a spot drenched in sunlight, and a bit more of a drink during Bunuru (late summer). In the feed department, a tomato-centric fertiliser in Djilba (early spring) does wonders. With a watchful eye and a wait of about 50-60 days, those lovely "Cherry" tomatoes will be ripe and ready to harvest. Given their compact growth, staking isn't often necessary, but a bit of support never hurts!
