Tomato, Estonian Yellow Cherry (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow Cherry. 65-70 days. Indet.
Multi-flora type with up to 100 fruit in a cluster. High yielding of small, round, yellow fruit with pointy ends. Good, sweet intense flavor. Early, decorative, and cold tolerant plants. Fruit hold their quality through late fall when others split or rot, and hold well off the vine. Collected from an elderly Russian woman at a market outside of Tallinn, Estonia. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Lila Towle, fellow Seed Ambassador and member of Frøsamlerne, the Danish seed saving organization.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.
Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.
