What is the Deal With No Cherry Tomatoes This Year, We Have Them

We have been getting complaints that people can't find any cherry tomato transplants in the garden centers this year. Its like their distributors forgot to plant some or something.  Well farmers know there are better varieties than you can get off the factory green house truck anyway.

We typically do two seedings. One for the early market and a second to set out after last frost in June. Here are the Best of the Best!  I planted a few hundred extra! We will have them the next three weeks, they are Well Hardened Off and Ready to Grow.

Sun Gold – Best for Flavor

Black Cherry – High Yielding, Sweet

Yellow Pear – Heirloom, Lemon Yellow

Grape – Very Sweet, Resists Cracking

Juliet – Salad Style, Meaty, Disease Resistance

Cherry tomatoes mature quickly, you will be able to start harvest in early August and continue until frost.
The weather is ready, are you? See us at the Farmers Market, while they last...
See our post on How To Grow Tomatoes for instructions.
