Description

Camp Joy cherries offer full, well-rounded tomato taste in a cherry tomato, not just sugar-lump sweetness without depth of flavor. This special heirloom is propagated for us by an organic family farm that sells all the Camp Joys they can grow each summer to devoted customers at our local farmer's market. The strong growing vines bear big, heavy clusters of large-sized luscious red cherries, whose taste becomes an annual summer passion.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting: Start indoors about 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 55°F (13°C) range. Sow seeds 1/4" deep and 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm, 75°F (24°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When they are 2" tall, transplant into 4" pots, burying stems up to the base of the leaves. Maintain around 70°F (21°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant these vigorous indeterminate climbers 3' apart in rich soil in full sun.

Growing: Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant tomatoes several inches deeper than they were growing in pots. Provide strong stakes or tall wire cages at planting time as plants grow tall with heavy fruit loads. Mulch to provide the even moisture that prevents cracking. Don't overwater once fruit begins to ripen.

Harvest & Use: Pick fruits when fully colored for best flavor. Enjoy for sweet snacks right out of the garden, in salads or stuffed with herbed cream cheese. For a delicious side dish, briefly sauté Camp Joy Cherries in a garlicky olive oil, then sprinkle with chopped fresh chives and basil.
