Patio, Kitchen Garden, Greenhouse, Conservatory
1 Packet (6 Tomato Seeds) (TT04895)
Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting.Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.
For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When tomato plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. When all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun.

Best Blight resistant Cherry Tomato 2016-09-18
I am growing this variety for the past 3 years.All the time in containers.High yields.Tasty also.Will grow again
Cheery tomato heaven 2016-08-22
Our tomatoes were hit with very early blight this year and some of our other blight resistant varieties succumbed. Not these though! Six plants outside on the allotment have been so prolific I've taken to freezing large batches. They taste fantastic and saved the day for us this year! I'll be growing them again next year but the only thing I would change is to plant them in a container or basket as they do make rather a scruffy bush in open ground giving easy access to slugs!
T&M replied on 2016-08-22: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with your purchase. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.
Losetto = lotsatomato 2013-03-18
Grew 4 of these in baskets in the greenhouse last year, along with many other varieties and these were the most successful of all of them - not many seeds in a packet but worth it, lovely deliciously sweet tomatoes ranging from pea sized to cherry tomato sized fruits. Perfect for salads, couscous and lunchboxes - will be growing these again this year!
Like bunches of grapes and very juicy 2011-11-15
We also bought these due to blight spoiling our crops over the past 4 years! These were totally blight free and were still cropping at the end of October! There are only 5 seeds in a pcaket but they all germinated and grew into superb little trailing bushes in baskets which I put on our fence. We'll definitely be growing these again next year and I would highly recommend them if you want a heavy cropping cherry tomato that stays blight free!
sweet as... 2011-08-22
I bought these due to blight ruining half my crop the previous year. Although we haven't seen much blight and my other varieties a doing well (but slowly outdoors), these little beautties are the star of the garden. I grew from seed and transplanted into hanging baskets in the sunniest area of the patio and they have flourished. As they hang down, we graze on them for a sweet snack and there are easy to harvest. According to my 6 year old son and resident tomato co expert, these are better than his granfathers (grown in a greenhouse). They are sweet & juicy beyond compare and so easy to grow and maintain. Looking forward to harvesting until October and DEFINITELY growing more of these plants next summer. HIGHLY recommended
Lots of tomatoes - no sign of blight, Thank you Losetto! 2011-08-21
Bought a pack of seeds as was curious if it'll really resist the dreading blight in our usually wet summers. Though the price for only 6 seeds seemed to be a bit extravagant, I was rewarded that every single seed germinated and grew into strong tomato plants, which went out mid of May to be planted in my hanging baskets. Now it's mid August and I have cascades of happy tomatoes similar to what you'd expect petunia surfinia to be doing, trailing down, only instead of flowers I've got lots of lovely cherry size tomatoes just turning orange colour. Couple went red, and must say that they tasted sweet and the skin was nice and thin, a true tomato qualities. But the biggest joy is that it's been no sign of blight so far!!! Would definitely grow them again next year!
Bought these because I've had a lot of problems with blight. Happy to say none of my Losetto plants have shown any signs of blight yet (unlike my Ferlines), and these are some of the sweetest tomatoes I've tasted. Will definitely be growing these next year, highly recommended.
Great tomato 2011-02-23
Bought just 2 plants last year for the patio & was the envy of my neighbours, gave fruit right until beginning of October, very prolific & delicious fruit. Needed hardly any maintenance only watering. Great, Highly recommended.
