Cherry tomatoes

Love the idea of growing tomatoes, but not sure where to start? Grab a pot and some cherry tomato seedlings. They’re amazingly easy to grow, and even one plant will bear a steady crop of bite-size fruits all season.

There are a few varieties you can choose from when planting cherry tomatoes. A popular variety of cherry tomatoes is Sweet Million, which bear long clusters of sweet yet tomatoey red fruit; SunSugar, which produces super-sweet, richly flavoured golden fruit; and an heirloom called Black Cherry, whose tomatoes have a complex, rich, sweet flavour.
