Gardener's Sweetheart Cherry Tomato Seeds

Gardener's Sweetheart Cherry Tomato Seeds

Sweet, Heart Shaped, Bright Red Fruits

The Gardener's Sweetheart Cherry Tomato, a unique cultivar in the Solanum lycopersicum family, is distinguished by its heart-shaped, cherry-sized fruits. Renowned for their intense sweetness and deep red coloration, these tomatoes are a preferred choice for culinary enthusiasts and gardeners alike.

Originating from a meticulous breeding program, the Gardener's Sweetheart Cherry Tomato is designed for both aesthetic appeal and flavor. The plant exhibits a robust, indeterminate growth habit, meaning it continues to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until halted by frost. It typically requires staking or trellising to support its vigorous growth.

Cultivation of this variety demands full sun exposure, at least 6-8 hours per day, and well-drained, fertile soil. It is adaptable to a range of climates but thrives in warmer conditions. Regular watering and fertilization are recommended to maintain healthy growth and optimize fruit production.

Harvesting begins when the tomatoes turn a vibrant red, indicating peak ripeness. The fruits should be picked gently to avoid bruising. Regular harvesting encourages the plant to produce more fruit, extending the yield period.

The plant's compact size and ornamental appearance make it an excellent choice for container gardening and small space cultivation, offering a bountiful harvest in a variety of settings. The Gardener's Sweetheart Cherry Tomato is not just a productive plant but a visually striking addition to any garden.

Planting & Care

Soil and 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 and Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart 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: Tomatoes store well in a cool, dry location out of direct sunlight. Storing them in the refrigerator will cause them to lose their flavor and texture.
