Matts Wild Cherry Tomato (55 Days)

Wild is the operative word here. Strong vines are overwhelmed by an abundance of small cherry tomatoes - hundreds of them. The flavor is intense and they seem impervious to almost any disease you can name. They are also early and will continue to yield well up to the first frost.

25 seeds


Solanum lycopersicum


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.

Cherry Tomato Seeds

These have germinated 100 % and look healthy and strong. I cannot wait to harvest my cherry tomatoes as I love them in salads and for snacks. Just need to put them in my raised bed; it's a little too soon right now but they will be in by mid-May.
