Be sure there’s no more chance of frost by expected germination day — your poor seedlings will die if they get too cold. You should be good by planting 6 — 8 weeks before the last frosty day of the year. Sow the seeds 0,6 cm deep in good soil. Keep containers warmly, at around 21°C until germination occurs, and then move them into full sun near a south-facing window. When the frosty weather has passed, and the plants are about 15 cm tall, transplant them into a sunny spot in the garden. Cherry tomatoes can grow big and bushy, so be sure you leave at least 60 — 90 cm between planting holes.
Usually, it takes about 4 — 5 months after sowing for the tomatoes to become ready for harvest. Before the harvest period, you’ll see flowers being followed by tiny green fruits. After a few weeks, those turn into full-blown cherry tomatoes that are ready to pick and eat. A truly ripe cherry tomato will come off its stem very easily and is well worth waiting an extra day for, so hold off on picking them until they’re ripe.
Get creative in the kitchen.
Cherry tomatoes are delicious in practically any dish you can name. Use them as a side, mix into salads, or make a sauce by chopping them thinly and heating in a saucepan.
