Cherry tomato is one crop I don’t get bored growing. Long trusses of fruits hanging all over the plant is just a pleasant sight to look at. I leave the tomatoes to ripen on the vine. So they taste a lot sweeter when they are harvested.
The cherry tomatoes that feature in this video are actually grape shaped. They are grown in bag culture. Actually I wanted to put them in paint buckets but bag culture is simple and cheaper to setup. With automated drip setup watering the plant at regular intervals, the plants have no other job but yielding nice tomatoes.
I actually wanted to make up for a month’s delay in post by writing the complete cycle of growing cherry tomato like my previous spinach post. But with the time so less and ocean of activities happening (I will keep that for the next post), I thought this video would convey most of what I wanted to write if not all.
Here it is folks,
Hope you all enjoyed watching.

Beautiful cherry tomatoes, gg. Are you saving the seeds yourself? I haven’t been able to find cherry tomato seeds and seeds saved from store-bought cherry tomatoes gave poor results.
GG – one basic question. What is the minimum requirement for the container size? I mean, the minimum length.
Inspiring and informative site. May I request sources for soil and seeds at bangalore.
I am looking for Chery Tomatoe seeds, I am located in chennai. How do I get them
I have lots of blossoms of cheery tomatoes, but I am having blossoms drop and none of my blossoms are getting converted to fruits. Its almost 2 months since I have planted the plant and it is almost 7 feet in height. It is producing lots of flowers but no fruits. After doing some research I understood that pollination or temperature could be the reason for blossom drop. I tried self pollinating by vibrating the blossoms with hand almost every day, but that still didn’t help. I am in Mumbai and the temperature is now not very harsh. Can you please help me in this. The plant is placed in my balcony and it receives almost 5-7 hours of direct sunlight
