Care Tips Under cover or outside they need staking, regular watering and feeding for best results. Need trimming and support, pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses. While still small, you also need to pinch out the side shoots. Water regularly to prevent splitting. Apply feed once they start to flower.
Storing Tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for 4-5 days (they will lose their flavour if kept in the fridge), and will freeze well.
Harvesting July-October
Cooking Notes Whenever you cook tomatoes, aim to include a mix of colours to get a spectrum of pigments for extra health, variation in acidity and sweetness and therefore the greatest depth of flavour.

These were planted in a grow bag outside and have been brilliant with one plant in particular doing exceptionally well. I have just picked the last tomates from it.

The seedlings arrived when forecast and I planted then in my greenhouse. The crop was excellent and brilliant flavour. I would comment that the final growing height would help as I did not expect them to grow to 6ft!!

We grew these cherry tomatoes one each in five large containers in different sunny spots in the garden. They all grew well and cropped prolifically, producing loads of really sweet tasty fruit. At times we had so many we had to give some away. Will definitely get them again next year.

Really pleased with these - we have had kilos i.e. plenty for ourselves and for giving to friends and family. I took a risk and planted them outside, but as it was against a south facing brick wall the bet paid off. We did lots of watering - natural ground but a relatively small rooting area. This summer may prove to have been very exceptional but I will repeat the experiment. Loved the sungold variety! Basically loved the fact that we had 5 different varieties (though 1 failed) and was replaced from the local garden centre.

I have absolutely loved the varieties included in this collection. The plants thrived in the sunshine outdoors and I've had a fantastic yield...the plants are still producing even now though I anticipate they will find themselves in a green chutney before long!

This year was too cold in my unheated greenhouse to start my own seedlings, so I decided to buy all plants in. May continue to do this as it was much easier and a lot less work. I only grew cherry tomatoes this year and they are still producing so pleased.

Despite a slow start they all did very well - cropping until mid September.

I was quite disappointed at first as each time I opened the package the seedlings were either broken or dead.
I think it was finally the fourth delivery that was successful
It was dealt with promptly but just annoying that I had to keep complaining, the cherry and plum variety were success ful, the ichocolate ones not so,I also purchased the dahlia collection for pots the first delivery didn’t! Grow at all the second delivery only two flowered, I was disappointed as I have a wonderful selection of your dahlias in the garden and was looking forward to the same on my terrace. So all in all a few problems this year.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for leaving your review. We are very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your Cherry tomato Collection and have refunded you for them. We note that you have already been refunded for the dahlia For Pots Collection."
