A completely determinate (bush type) variety that produces cherry fruit. It has been bred specifically for use in hanging baskets and containers, and has an excellent cascading habit. Garden Pearl produces an abundance of fruits throughout the Summer.
Fruit: red, cherry, 12-16 grams.
Requires a rich well-drained soil in a warm sunny position.
Tomato plants are not frost-tolerant and generally need to be started off in a greenhouse in the spring if they are to succeed outdoors in Britain. They also need a hot sunny summer if they are to fruit well.
Tomatoes grow well with asparagus, parsley, brassicas and stinging nettles. They are also a good companion for gooseberries, helping to keep them free of insect pests. They dislike growing near fennel, kohl-rabi, potatoes and brassicas (this is not a typing error, merely a difference of opinion between different books).
