Cherry Tomato - Chadwick - Lycoperiscon esculentum
Tender Annual Indeterminate. This is a truly tasty cherry tomato. Large, disease resistant vines set abundant crops of 1" fruits borne in clusters. A perfect cherry for salads and snacking. This cherry was developed by brilliant horticulturist Alan Chadwick and bears his name.
Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4"-6" deep at 7-day intervals.
Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
