This heirloom from the Ozark mountains of America is an almost disease-free cherry tomato, with good resistance to early and late blight. The high-yielding small to medium-sized soft sweet fruits have won competitions for flavour. (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots.
