Tomato 'Bajaja'

Solanum lycopersicum L.

Basket/ Container.

This sweet and juicy cherry tomato is so prolific that each plant can produce up to 700 small, 8-10g (½oz), juicy red fruits. With crops of that size there will be plenty of delicious tomatoes for snacking on, as well as adding to salads and other culinary dishes. Tomato 'Bajaja' is a versatile variety as its size can be controlled by the size of the container in which it is planted. This makes it ideal for an early tomato crop in patio containers, and this compact bush variety won't require side shooting, making it particularly easy to grow. Height and spread: 35cm (14").


Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.
