Cordon

A fabulous new cherry tomato producing unique rose-pink skin with smoky overtones. Not only is the colour unusual, Tomato 'Rosella' has high levels of sweetness and acidity for a pronounced and lingering flavour. Heavy crops of thin-skinned 15g (½oz) fruits are produced from midsummer onwards, making an exciting and flavoursome addition to salads and cooked dishes. This cordon variety can be grown in the greenhouse, or in a sheltered, sunny spot outdoors. 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.

Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months

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.


Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of 'sideshooting' and 'stopping' will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. 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 growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.


When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. 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.

Easy and great tasty results 2016-12-08

This is now my favourite cherry tomato. Extremely sweet jamminess. One to grow every year from now on. Highly recommended. I grew as cordon, sown under heated glass in March. First fruit in late May.

A rival to Sungold 2016-08-19

Our family has always loved Sungold.........but we think Rosella tastes even better! We are growing it in a polytunnel as a cordon and it has a very heavy crop of nice-sized cherry tomatoes. The taste is superb. I will definitely be growing it again next year, and will try it outdoors as well as in the polytunnel and greenhouse.
