A colourful vegetable, grows well outside in the UK, as well as indoors. And your summer harvest will be colourful and delicious too with this cherry tomato's somewhat sweet, rich and distinguished flavour. The strong growing plants will fruit slightly earlier than other cherry tomatoes. The deep maroon colour of the cherry sized fruits is truly amazing.
Plant the black cherry tomato plants outside mid-May-June (most importantly when there is no risk of frost in your area) 80x60 cm, or keep in the border of the greenhouse or polytunnel in a growbag or in rich, moist soil.
Support the developing stem with twine as they grow. The plants will need some sort of training system to grow up on. Cordon tomatoes, as the name suggest, grow high up and they grow continuously.
Side-shoot removal must be carried out from the start of the growing season, as soon as the plants have 2-3 pairs of true leaves they produce sideshoots. When you are growing black cherry tomatoes, restricting the plant to one main stem is the common gardeners’ law. Stop the plant growth by pinching out the top growing point of the plant, when 4-5 trusses have set if you grow them outside, or when 6-7 trusses formed if you raised your plants under cover. The lower leaves should be removed too when they start yellowing, this will aid fruit ripening and improves air movement around the plants, which will help to humidity.
