Tomato, Sweet Cherriette (Organic)

$3.50$13.00

Solanum sp. Red Currant. 35 days. Indet. Dwarf.

Probably an interspecific cross of S. esculentum and S. pimpinellifolium. A delightful discovery for us from an old packet from Peters Seed and Research given to us by our friends at Bountiful Gardens. Almost always the first tomato of the season for us, sometimes by two whole weeks! Beautifully branched, small vines are great for container culture or hanging baskets. Flavor is reminiscent of red currant types, and more tart than you would expect with a name like Sweet Cherriette. Fruit are larger than true currants, but smaller than cherry tomatoes. We call it an indeterminate dwarf, as it pumps out several flushes of fruit over the course of the season. I know it’s redundant, but so true I have to say it again: Sweet Cherriette is a delight!

      It’s a dwarf type with a cascading growth habit so it stays rather “bushy” and typically doesn’t grow more than 18″ tall.

      I recommend one plant per 5 gallon container. 2 would grow ok but it would probably not be a benefit to yield. We have never tried this so it might be worth a trial.
