How to grow Cherry Tomato Zuckertraube Seeds

To grow in heated greenhouses sow January onwards, in a temperature of 16-18°C. Transplant into small pots. Plant out in large pots, growing bags, or into a soil border at 45cm spacing. Pinch out side shoots regularly and when in flower tap or shake plants daily to aid setting. For growing in unheated greenhouses, sow in warmth, from March onwards. Plant late April-early May. Harvest mid August-mid October.

Sow in trays or pots indoors March-April and harden off the plants before planting 45cm apart in early June. Choose a warm, sheltered position.

Cherry tomato Zuckertraube seeds take about 5-10 days to germinate and 60 days to reach maturity.

Both indoor and outdoors, these plants like being staked in order to encourage upward growth and room for bearing fruit. Harvest throughout the summer. Harvest all of the fruit before the first frost in Autumn. Pinch out the main growth when four good trusses have set.
