You really cannot beat the sweet, intense flavour of a cherry tomato! Eaten straight from the vine the sweet and tangy flavour is wonderful (much better than those found at the supermarket!) and in our opinion a true highlight of the growing season. We highly recommend growing a few different varieties of cherry tomatoes to add a whole host of flavours to your kitchen- plus the varying colours, sizes and flavours add great interest to the salad bowl!
Cherry tomatoes are easy to grow, so you certainly will not regret making space for a few plants which will reward you with flavoursome bite-size fruits all season. The plants do well in a sunny, sheltered spot and if space is limited look for bushy cultivators that will do well in pots, baskets or growbags.
The fruits make a great addition to children’s lunchboxes, fresh summer salads, pasta dishes, risottos, and a whole host of other dishes. Customer favourite varieties include Sungold F1 and Sweet Million F1 which are both high yielding varieties with superb colour and excellent flavour. For space savvy gardeners’ varieties such as Losetto F1 and Cherry Falls have a gentle cascading growth habit making them a great choice for growing in containers and even hanging baskets.
