Enjoy fresh tomatoes in salads or other dishes or pickle them for a tasty treat thanks to the Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato plant. This tidy, upright plant reaches 8 inches tall and wide and lives in just about any sunny spot, from a patio table to a kitchen counter. Use a skewer to support the plant, so it stays upright when the 0.5- to 1-inch fruit starts to weigh it down. This easy-care plant is a determinate cultivar, so all of the tomatoes will ripen in a couple of weeks.
Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato Care
The tiny Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato plant can live indoors or out. Place this vegetable plant in full sun, so select a South-facing window or a patio table in direct light. Tomatoes prefer fertile soil with a 6.0 to 6.8 pH. The soil should promote drainage because this plant does not like to have wet feet.
Growing Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato
To produce round, sweet-tasting tomatoes, it takes the Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato 70 to 84 days. The plant is relatively compact and stands 8 inches tall, so it can easily fit into areas with limited space.
Growing Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomatoes in Containers
Use a 6- to 8-inch container with drainage for this cocoa cherry tomato plant. Use supports so the plant can withstand the weight of the ripening fruit. Grow one plant in a container for proper root space and foliage air circulation.
Watering Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato
Feel the soil to determine when to water this plant. The Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato prefers to dry out somewhat, so water when the top few inches of soil feel dry. Drench the soil until the excess drains through the pot.
Feeding Kitchen Minis™ Cocoa Cherry Tomato
Tomatoes are heavy feeders that will reward your effort with a bumper crop. Apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every few weeks to promote healthy growth.
