Pale yellow cherries are delicious, and grow on some of the largest clusters known! Sweet fruit is oval, each with a tiny “beak” at the blossom end. Flavour is good, the fruit keeps well, and the sight of the 20- to 40-fruit trusses on the large plants is positively mind-boggling. Indeterminate requires support. 75 days. Heirloom Veg.
Planting: Tomatoes are tender plants and are very susceptible to frost damage. Transplant after all danger of frost has passed. When transplanting, space about 2′ apart.
Growing: Full sun location, preferably with good air circulation. These plants are not picky when it comes to soil, they seem to prefer slightly acidic soil. Ensure even watering, moist soil.
Harvest: Pick fruit when fruit is firm and turning full colour.
Pests & Diseases: Protect from cutworms by using protective collars around the plant stem or place cornmeal around plant base. Blossom end rot (a brownish-black, sunken dead area that forms on the bottom of the fruit) is a condition caused by a calcium deficiency due to uneven watering. Blight, another disease common to tomatoes is caused by warm, humid conditions particularly if plants have not been given some support to keep foliage off the ground. Good air circulation along with proper rotation will help to prevent onset of this harmful disease.
Companions: Asparagus, basil, borage, bush bean, cabbage, carrot, celery, chive, cucumber, lettuce, onion, pepper.
