Cherry Tomatoes

Small enough to eat in one mouthful, but gorgeous sliced in half and mixed into a colourful salad, and delicious roasted whole until the skins blister and the sweetness caramelises and turns them into jewels of flavour, there’s so many ways to enjoy cherry tomatoes.

The plants generally require staking or trellising and some pruning is advised to keep the lower leaves off the soil to avoid soil borne diseases and allow for more light and air to reach the clusters of fruit. You can also consider pruning the suckers that form between the horizontal branching leaves and the main stem to focus the growth on the central stem.
