TOMATOES SWEETIE

Description
Sweetie Cherry Tomato Seeds 2350 The sweetest cherry tomato you will ever taste! Small 2.5 cm (1″) (approximate size) fruits form in clusters on long branches. This variety should be staked for maximum production. Use for preserves (believe us, they wont need any extra sugar) or eat fresh from the garden. When this variety starts to produce, you had better get the wheelbarrow out — you will need it to haul in the crop! Semi-determinate growth pattern.

How to Grow
350 seed/gram Sow seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before last spring frost date – use a peat moss based growing mix for germination and growing seedlings. The temperature of the seeding mix should be 21-24 C (70 – 75 F) for prompt germination. When the seedlings are 4 cm (1.75″) high, transplant each into individual peat pots – reducing temperature to 15–18 C (59 – 65 F) until planting in the garden late May. After hardening off, transplant into well-drained organic soil 60 cm (24″) apart for determinate varieties and 90 cm (36″) apart for indeterminate varieties. Tomatoes need warmth, direct sunlight & a steady supply of water. Keep plants well-watered. Apply the water to the soil rather than showering down over the plants. Rotate the crop position in the garden every year. Wait three years to use the same patch in the garden. Dig out and discard diseased plants. Do not compost. It is also very important to keep plants evenly watered as fluctuations in available soil moisture can lead to a host of problems such as fruit cracking or splitting, irregular fruiting and increasing the chance of blossom end rot developing. Apply a mulch of straw around plants to protect them from soil borne diseases and to help conserve soil moisture.
