The Cherry Roma Tomato is a stellar example of blending the best of two worlds - the meaty consistency of the roma and the saccharine delight of cherry tomatoes. Over the years, they've steadily risen in popularity, becoming a garden staple for many. This is attributed not just to their taste, but also their uniform size and prolific yields.
These bite-sized wonders are versatile. They serve as the ideal topping for salads, the central component of tangy salsas, or even as a quick snack right off the vine. Their consistency also makes them an excellent candidate for drying and roasting, preserving their flavors for a longer period.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
The Cherry Roma Tomato is a determinate variety. This means that it will set and ripen its fruit in a concentrated period, rather than continuously over the season. Begin by sowing the seeds indoors about 1/4 inch deep, approximately 6-8 weeks ahead of the last frost. If you choose to sow outdoors, wait until the soil has adequately warmed up. When spacing them out, allow for 24-36 inches between plants and set them in rows that are 36 inches apart. As with most tomato varieties, the Cherry Roma thrives in full sun and prefers soil that offers good drainage. Proper care ensures a bounty of flavorful tomatoes to grace your dishes.
