Follow these user-friendly instructions to grow Cherry Tomatoes:
- Position seeds in full sunlight, sowing them 1/8 to 1/2 inch deep and 3 to 4 inches apart.
- Plan for approximately 80 days to achieve mature growth.
- Start your seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks prior to the last frost, using soil trays or small pots.
- Shift to larger 3- to 4-inch pots when the first real leaves emerge.
- Plant seedlings so the lowest leaves are just above the soil, 2 to 4 weeks after the last frost, and fertilize appropriately.
- Set plants at intervals of 2 to 3 inches.
- Provide support via stakes, cages, or trellises to aid tomato growth.
- Allow the fruit to attain full ripeness on the vine to enhance the flavor.
- Pluck tomatoes when their skin appears sleek and glossy, even if the top has not yet reached its mature color.
- Keep tomatoes at ambient temperature for optimal taste.
