Large cherry tomatoes are a variety of cherry tomatoes known for their large size and sweet, juicy flavor. These tomatoes are typically used for snacking, salads, and sandwiches.
To grow Large Cherry Tomatoes, you will need:
- Well-drained, fertile soil
- Warm temperatures (70-80F is ideal)
- Full sun
- Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings after all danger of frost has passed. Space the plants about 2-3 feet apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the tomatoes regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the tomatoes with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
As the tomatoes start to grow, tie them to a stake or trellis to support the weight of the fruit.
Harvest the tomatoes when they are ripe, usually about 70-80 days after planting.
