GARDENERS DELIGHT TOMATO (67 days)

3

Indeterminate. 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. 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

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.

Our favorite small tomato

Warning, these comments won't apply in a lot of regions. We live where we don't have to worry about frost. It never freezes. We discovered these tomatoes about six years ago and really liked them, but we've stopped buying the seeds. That is because they have naturalized on our yard! We have a big yard by Southern California standards, but a tiny yard compared to yards in most places. We still plant a couple of varieties of beefsteaks in our garden, but don't need to start the Gardeners Delights. We just look for tomato plants growing near decorative plants outside of the garden. The first plants generally appear in January. It is now mid-April and we have the first tiny fruit. They usually keep growing tomatoes until about October. They taste great.
