This heavy cropping, super-sweet, large cherry tomato is a top choice for both the beginner and experienced vegetable grower. An indeterminate variety (needs support), it can be reliably grown in a greenhouse or outdoors, producing and abundance of long trailing vines with 10-14 fruits per truss all summer long – quite literally, a gardener’s delight!
Cropping from early summer right into October, ‘Gardener’s Delight’ will reward with super-sweet, richly flavoured fruits with red, glossy skins – perfect for salads and sandwiches as well as for cooking. Try roasting whole trusses with fruit still attached for an attractive addition to pizzas and other savoury dishes – the deliciously sweet flavour will intensify as they cook.
Easy to grow, plant your jumbo plugs into moist but well-drained, fertile soil or compost in large pots, growbags or border in the greenhouse, or positioned outside in a sunny, sheltered position once the frosts are over. All they need is a sturdy support and some pinching out of sets to encourage a tall, upright central stem.
