Cherry Tomato - Matt's Wild Cherry - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Heirloom. Indeterminate. Grow a wild tomato. A native of Mexico, this robust and sprawling cherry tomato is loved for the rich flavor of its sweet fruits. An early producer, Matt’s is resistant to early blight and has some resistance to late blight.

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil that is 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. Due to the thin skins, these tomatoes may crack if left to ripen on the vines, so pick early.

Did You Know? This tomato grew wild in the state of Hidalgo, in eastern Mexico near Mexico City.
