TOMATOBERRY GARDEN TOMATO ( F1 Hybrid, 60 days )

Indeterminate. The original tomato-berry was the third place finisher for the FRUIT LOGISTICA INNOVATION Award for 2008. One wonders what the two top finishers could have been. This improvement is bred for home gardeners and is unique. Fruit resemble large strawberries both for sweetness and appearance. It is great for eating right off the vine as is Sungold. Fruits are only about an inch across and notably heart shaped. Resists cracking and carries more sweet juice than most cherry tomatoes. 15 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.

    Tomatoberry garden tomato seeds

    Not mature yet LOL :-) But past years have shown this tomato to be one of my favorite cherry-type tomato - I love the shape, color, durability and production of the plant, and of course, the flavor: to me, it's a great balance of sweet with a little bite. It's one I keep coming back to year after year :-)

    Tried it and love it

    My first experience with this tomato was when in the middle of winter I bought a pint at my local food store to see how they tasted. I was impressed with the flavor and shape, especially for a greenhouse tomato. When I found I could get the seed I decided to try growing them in my own garden. I have grown them every year since. As everyone says, they don't *****. Most years they are my first tomato to ripen (I grow about 20 different tomatoes) and the vines keep producing until first frost. My seedlings are a little small compared with some of the other tomatoes I grow, I used to wonder if they were going to make it when I planted them in my garden but now I know that is just the way they are.

    Heart shaped sweet tomotoes

    I have grown tomatoberry tomatoes for years. It is the only small cluster tomato I grow. It is heart shaped, very sweet and does not *****. It is bigger than most cherry tomatoes

    So good!

    Grew this in an " Earth Box", which provides uniform watering. Usually grow Sungold, Suncherry or Black Crim. For me, this is superior. Thinner skin, more flavorful, and bigger than the others, and darn cute with it's heart shape. As the summer wound down, I noticed that they became more round and a bit smaller.

    Nice Flavor and *****-proof

    I've grown these for 2 years now. The flavor is very good for a red cherry tomato, but I would say it is definitely a notch below Sungold or Black Cherry. The plants are not very vigorous as seedlings. Growth improves once set out in the garden. Disease resistance seems to be fair. I have had some minor leaf disease problems in both seasons. Yield is not particularly good for a cherry tomato. I typically get 250-500 tomatoes from a cherry tomato plant even in a short Minnesota summer. I get about half that from one of these. On the plus side, fruit size is very uniform and every fruit is smooth and blemish-free. They are also extremely *****-resistant. My soil is very sandy and thus dries out quickly even when watered frequently. A few days of dry weather followed by drenching thunderstorms is the norm here and many cherry tomatoes split despite my best efforts to keep them evenly moist. The Tomatoberry tomatoes are essentially impervious to cracking in my experience. So the total yield of usable fruit is still pretty good despite the shy fruit set. So this variety is definitely worth a try if you have problems with cracked fruit.
