Cheerio, organic seeds



Is one of the earliest wholly red cherry tomatoes. It yields a vast amount of very red  and delicious tomatoes (3 cm) on branchy, bushy plants which may need support. The fruits weigh 25-35 g. Cheerio can take cool and changeable weather better then most sorts, a favourite of long standing. A portion contains about 20 seeds.

Cultivation advice


Sow indoors just under 1 cm deep 7-8 weeks before setting out, in February-March for cool green houses and in March April for outdoors tomatoes! The best germination temperature is 24-29°C. Let the plants stand in a light airy place and after sprouting preferably at a temperature of 18°C. After getting a few real leaves the sprouts should be planted in pots. The temperature can now be lowered further.

Temper the plants successively before setting out. Do not set the plants outdoors before the risk of nightly frost is over and the nightly temperature keeps above 7°C! Plant them a little deeper then they were in the pots and never allow them to dry out. Tomatoes get roots on the stems if they are allowed to get under the soil so overgrown plants can be planted lying with just the top above the earth. However, tomatoes which have been sown and set out too early often get disturbed while growing and that causes lanky plants and a bad crop of tomatoes. Do not hurry too much with your sowing if you do not have a really good "nursery".
