Cherry tomatoes are always the first to grace Fruition’s gardens each season! First are Chiapas and Coyote, which we often harvest right to frost, with their disease resistance, followed by an exquisite rainbow of colors and flavors, each variety adapted for organic gardens in short seasons, including many that thrive in containers. If you’re looking for crack-resistant cherries, Gardener’s Sweetheart and Cherry Ember are exceptional as well as delicious.
At Fruition, we sow tomatoes indoors two months before final frost in early April to harden off & transplant after final frost in late May. If you have a great seed starting set-up with a great grow-light and plenty of time to tend your seedlings, feel free to start your tomatoes earlier, just keep in mind that younger, unstressed transplants are almost always more fruitful than older, more stressed transplants.
