Description

Cordon

Tomato 'Crimson Cherry' has been bred with outdoor growing in mind. This early cropping variety begins producing fruit before the worst risk of blight arrives, and after that, it tends to outgrow any infection, minimising any risk to your crop. The small cherry fruits have glossy, red skins and a sweet, juicy flesh with a superb flavour.

This grafted cordon variety is perfect for containers or planters outdoors or in the greenhouse and copes well with periods of wet weather. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").


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

How to Grow
Pot up, and grow tomato plants on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Alternatively grow tomatoes in patio bags and containers in good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
More Info
Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first fruits have formed. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting.
