Tomato Red Berry / Cherry
Red Berry/Cherry is a lovely sweet cherry tomato. An early/mid ripening, indeterminate, regular leafed plant has trusses of up to 50 sweet tasting fruit mean that this is a prolific cropper with good spacing between the trusses which means there are only a few trusses on the plant. Usually one of the first tomatoes in our gardens. Compares well with other small cherry tomatoes such as Christmas Grapes and crops slightly earlier (just after Bloody Butcher which is usually first). A classic simple red cherry tomato and a good start to the tomato year.

Sow and Plant

Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Tie upright types to canes with string to support the weight of the fruit. Remove side shoots which grow in the angle between the leaf stems and the main stem of the plant.
Pick regularly as soon as the fruits are ripe. This encourages production of more tomatoes.
Blossom end rot patches on the bottom of fruits are a nutritional disorder best prevented by growing tomatoes in well-prepared soil with constant light moisture. Yellow leaves indicate lack of magnesium, so apply liquid feed.
