Super-sweet and bitesize tomato variety exclusive to Marshalls. Get these young plants of easy-to-grow cordon cherry tomatoes, specially bred for the home-grower for its disease resistance to wilt and virus, vigour and its generous trusses of fruit.
An easy-to-grow cherry tomato that will grow happily in a greenhouse or even outdoors in a sunny spot. Its F1-hybrid status means every plant is naturally vigorous and free-fruiting giving you a huge crop of sweet cherry tomatoes, rich red in colour. Every fruit weighs 15-22g and an average truss gives around 15 tomatoes.
Multiple trusses form on this cordon plant which will happily grow outdoors on a sunny sheltered patio as well as indoors in a cool summer greenhouse. As the plant grows we recommend you tie in plants to trellis or canes and remove the little side shoots that appear in the ‘crotches’ of the main stems and side-stems. Tomatoes are rich in feel-good vitamins A and C, potassium, folate and lycopene.
When you receive your tomato plants by post, water lightly, then plant them up in small pots. If the stem tip is bent, rest assured, it will quickly right itself when exposed to daylight to grow straight and upright. Read our blog for more information on why tomato plants do this.
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
