Description

These extremely rare, lemon-yellow coloured, medium-large cherry tomatoes are very tasty with a good, sweet and mild flavour, and when immature have some faint striping similar to gooseberries, hence the name. A very old heirloom tomato that was popular in the 1800’s and listed by Fearing Burr in 1865. It was also illustrated in the Album Vilmorin in 1868. (Cordon)

Sowing Advice

Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
