a fabulous variety producing prolific crops of 8-10g (1/3oz) cherry tomatoes which hang on trusses like bunches of grapes. Tomato ‚Sweet Baby‚ has a delicious sweet flavour with a bit of ‚bite‚. This cordon cherry tomato is well suited to growing outdoors or in the greenhouse. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.
When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5‚) cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.
Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop.
