Sweetie cherry tomato plants are highly adaptable to adverse growing conditions and plants are well tolerant of cool, wet conditions. A winner in flavour among the early red cherry varieties, theys have a unique, rich, sweet flavour and can be used for juice and preserves without adding sugar. Sweetie cherry tomatoes average 12-14% sugar content!
Vigorous, indeterminate vines reach1.8 meters (6′) long and require staking. Highly productive, with a long harvest window, the plants bear generous clusters of 15-20 juicy cherry tomatoes 2.5-3.8 cm (1-1.5″)until the first frost. For best results, harvest fruit when fully coloured and firm. About one month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plants remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of under ripe tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors. Indeterminate (vine). Matures in 50-80 days (Open-pollinated)
