In Japan, small is beautiful, and this robust but delicate-looking cherry tomato variety illustrates this to perfection. While reaching just 45 cm in height (on the large side for a micro dwarf) the bright red, rounded cherry tomatoes are produced in profusion. You’ll love the look of a full plant laden with ripening fruit. But what about the taste? Small though they may be, these tomatoes pack a fresh, acidic bite with just a touch of sweetness and have a texture that’s firm without being crunchy.

  • 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.
