About Cherry Tomatoes: Cherry tomatoes are small in size, which is 2 to 3 cm long, with a round shape. Cherry tomatoes are similar to tomatoes, and their seeds are also as tiny as tomatoes seeds. Mostly cherry tomatoes are also known as plum tomatoes, and grape tomatoes and their taste are similar to tomatoes like sweet or milder. There are many types of cherry tomatoes in the market, like super sweet, yellow pear, the black pearl, sun gold, green envy, Italian ice…etc. Most of the cherry verities contain 25 calories, and others contain 25 to 30 calories.
The scientific name is solanum Lycopersicum var. cerasiforme and it comes with the Solanaceae family.
Simple Way for Seedling: We are using the most popular method to get many cherry tomatoes. Seeds are easily available in local nurseries and online stores, and seeds are tiny and similar to tomato seeds. Plant cherry tomatoes will give you 3 to 4 months of fruits (which means lots of tomatoes).
Now prepare the soil potting: To make the soil mixture, take out the garden soil (50%), cow dung manure (30%), and coco peat (20%). Mix it well and remove all small pebbles and small stones because there is no need for small stones and pebbles. Take a 10 to 12 inches flower pot with a depth of 5 to 6 inches. Now follow these steps for plantation:
- Fill out the soil mixture into the flowerpot.
- Take out the seeds and spray seeds on the soil potting.
- Cover all the seeds with the same soil mixture.
- Spray some water on the soil potting.
- Place the flowerpot in full sunlight for at least 4 to 5 hours.
Over time, germination starts from the seeds, and new leaves and stems appear from the seeds. If germination plants grow up to 4 to 6 inches with 4 to 5 leaves, then it’s time to transplant them with a separate flowerpot.
Amazing Tips for Transplantation
- Take out the normal garden soil, vermicompost, and cow dung.
- Mix it well and use a clay flowerpot.
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot.
- Remove all the plants from the old flowerpot.
- Plant in a new flowerpot (2 to 3 inches deep) carefully (Roots should not break while removing plants).
- For the best growth, place the flowerpot in full sunlight.
