Large plants with long, cascading branches full of very small, tasty fruit. The ultimate tomato for hanging baskets.
Fruit type: very small, round
Micro Cherry is the ultimate tomato for hanging baskets.
Plants are large and spreading with long, cascading branches full of fruit. Growth habit is determinate, so no pruning is necessary. The juicy red fruit are quite small, measuring about 20mm in diameter. For the biggest – and most dramatic plants – use containers 5 to 10 litres in size.
A unique and impressive variety that will not disappoint.
The plants – quite literally – can produce thousands of fruit. One year we grew two plants, each in alarge hanging baskets, and they both produced more than 6,000 ripe tomatoes!
Determinate (bush) growth habit with long trailing branches
Approximate number of seeds per pack: 15
The variety ‘Micro Cherry’ is probably the same as the variety sold as ‘Hundreds and Thousands’, or even '100s and 1000s'. We use the name ‘Micro Cherry’ since that is how the seed was sold to us.
In 2020, we grew a plant of the tomato Microcherry in a 10 litre pot to check its ability to produce fruit. Though sowing was done quite late (22nd June), the plant was grown undercover and managed to produce a total of 912 red, orange and green fruit by 5th October.
