Gardeners Delight Tomato (67 Days)

This open-pollinated, large cherry tomato has become very popular through word of mouth because this is an excellent tomato. The 1 to 1 1/2 inch dark cherry red fruits have a delightful sweetness, a classic summer flavor. They resist cracking very well and are produced in abundance. The German grower, Ernst Benary, has gradually evolved into a flower seed company; this is the only vegetable seed they continue to produce--because it is so popular.

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

A solid performer with classic cherry tomato...

Outstanding germination and plant robustness. Prolific producer - early and sustained. Largish fruit for a cherry tomato. Interestingly, on each plant a few of the earliest fruit set were slightly pear-shaped. Classic cherry tomato flavor with medium-bright acidity. Texture is on the dryish side. Tender, but not too delicate. Not super sweet or intense - if you're looking for a flavor bomb, this may not be your best choice. Would buy again for reliability and overall high quality. It was truly a delight to grow.
