Tomato “Cherry Brandywine”

$3.95

This variety displays a vibrant, bright pink color, resembling a cherry at a mid-ripe stage. The fruits tend to cluster together in groups of 6 to 10.

The flesh of these tomatoes carries a flavor reminiscent of “Brandywine” beefsteak, albeit in a miniature form. The intensity of this flavor becomes more pronounced in the latter part of the growing season, though it’s important to mention that these tomatoes contain a substantial number of seeds.

How To Grow

Plant seeds in trays or modules of good organic compost between January and March at a temperature of 18-21 degrees C. Seed can also be planted in March and April – putting the trays on a sunny windowsill – if you do not have a propagator for earlier sowings.

Pot up into 8cm pots when the first few true leaves appear and the plants are approximately 8cm tall. Use a good quality organic potting compost with good nutrient levels and grow on at 10 degrees C. The plants grow rapidly and need nitrogen particularly to stay green and healthy.

If you are growing in pots keep potting up the plants until you get to the largest size you have. Plant out in grow bags, inside borders, or outside borders – depending on the variety, in April and May. Tomatoes are not frost-hardy. Feed with an organic liquid feed when the first trusses of Tomatoes form and keep feeding and watering as required.

Try to keep the watering consistent and try not to let the plants dry out. Support tall growing varieties with strings or canes and pinch out the side shoots that grow from the base of the leaf joint, but not the flower stems!

Pruning and Maintenance

Once the plants have set 3 or 4 trusses of fruit you can pinch out the growing tip of the plant. Remove older, yellowing leaves from the base of the plant and this will improve light and airflow to the lower trusses of the fruit. Harvest your tomatoes when ripe from June until October.
