Cherry - fruit tomatoes
Small tomatoes with a fruit weight of 15 to 20 g are called cherry tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes in their pulp contain twice as much dry matter as regular tomatoes. Breeders love to experiment with small-fruited crops, resulting in cherry with the taste of blueberries, raspberries and other fruits. However, this does not mean that all cherries are small-fruited. There are also large-fruited varieties that yield tennis ball-sized tomatoes.
Like traditional varieties, cherry trees have high, low and medium bush growth. For decorative purposes, tall crops are most often planted. Cherries shine with a variety of shapes and colors of fruits, structure and arrangement of brushes on the plant.

Features of growing cherry tomatoes
Agrotechnology of cherry tomatoes is no different from ordinary tomatoes. They are grown in the garden, in the greenhouse and on the balcony. Basically all cherry tomatoes are hybrids. A distinctive feature of the culture is a high percentage of seed germination, plant resistance to stressful situations, intensive bush growth and high yield. Indeterminate cherry trees bear fruit successfully outdoors. Even in the central regions in the garden, the culture manages to bring at least 4 ripe clusters with 20-40 fruits on each before the onset of frost.
Attention! Periodically, you need to pay attention to the location of the brushes. The less often they are formed on the stem, the more stepchildren must be removed from the plant. Optimally, 2 or 3 leaves should grow between each brush.
Practically, like all large-fruited tomatoes, cherry tomatoes love regular watering and loosening of the soil. With proper care, the plant will thank you with a high yield. It is important to avoid contact of leaves and fruits with the soil. So that the bushes do not fall to the ground, they are fixed to the trellis from an early age. Plants should not be planted densely. This will increase the likelihood of damage to tomatoes by late blight.

Advice! Cherry tomatoes have a little secret when it comes to harvesting. The fruits must be plucked from the bush when they reach full maturity.
