Heirloom Cherry Tomato Seeds

This is the heirloom cherry variety that has been around for a century. The indeterminate vines are not as phenomenally heavy yielding as some of the new hybrids, but yields are still good. Flavor is excellent, a bit more acidic than its modern counterparts, and size is just right--that of a ping pong ball. Non-genetically engineered seeds.

For earliest harvest, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost, keeping soil temperature in the mid-70's. Grow in full sun. Shift hardened transplants to garden shortly after last frost. Water regularly and fertilize when 6" (15 cm.) tall, and again in mid-summer. Stake or cage to save space.

Harvest: Pick carefully when richly colored and firm, but before fruit begins to soften.

Nutrition: Rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.

5 of 5 The seeds haven't germinated yet... November 12, 2017
Reviewer: James Covey from Rochester, NY United States  
I ordered the seeds one day and received the next! Fastest shipping I have ever seen! I brought my two Meyer Lemon patio trees inside for the winter months and have them under a 600 watt HPS horticulture lamp 12 hours a day. I figured why waste all the light on just these two lemon trees so I am hoping to grow cherry tomatoes inside this winter in upstate NY. I will let you how well they grow under artificial light.
