Tomato - Cherrola F1
Cherrola's long trusses often hold up to 20 well-spaced, dark red fruits weighing on average 20g. The cherry-sized fruits have an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity giving them an outstanding flavour. Tomato Cherrola is suitable for growing outside or under glass, and is delicious in salads and sandwiches or eaten straight from the garden as a snack. It is early ripening and crops heavily throughout the summer.
Place seeds on the surface of a free-draining compost and cover with about 6mm of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-21C until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 2cm high. It can be planted outdoors, 45cm apart once all frost risk has passed. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
