This tomato plant is just the right size in several ways! The vines are gorgeously compact so that even apartment gardeners can grow them in pots, but though the plants are compact, the bearing season is long. The fruits are exactly the right size, especially if you're tired of tomato halves floating around the fridge. These are nice, medium size to snack on whole or to slice up for sandwiches. As for the flavour, it's everything you'd want from a nice, fresh garden tomato.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

    How to Harvest

    Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
