Cherry-type tomatoes are a favorite for many gardeners for various reasons. These bite-sized fruits are ready to eat earlier than large tomatoes. They are also conveniently sized for snacking. And, these little tomatoes are often exceptionally sweet and flavorful.
Supersweet 100 tomatoes are known for their extra sweetness and high amount of vitamin C. They grow in clusters and are reminiscent of grapes on the vine. These clusters usually contain 20 tomatoes or more and the vines are quite productive! This particular indeterminate variety grows fruit until the frost which is great to have, rather than a harvest all at once.
Another plus of Supersweet 100 tomatoes is the fact that they are disease resistant
such as Verticillium Wilt and Fusarium Wilt race 1. This variety is easy to grown and the fruits taste great, making them perfect for adding to salads or, of course, just snacking.
A support system is encouraged when growing tomatoes. The next post will be about different types of supports. Keep posted! However, here is a recipe to try for this cold weather.
