Tomato Plant - Veranda Red

One of the nicest tomato plants for sale at the moment. Ripe fruit (12-16g fruit) very early (mid July) so you won’t have to wait too long for beautiful, tasty cherry-sized tomatoes. With the added bonus of some blight resistance and resistance to fusarium and verticillium, this plant is easy to grow and maintain.

How do I grow tomato plants?

Growing your own is more than just being self-sufficient. It’s about growing varieties that are not readily available in shops and supermarkets, varieties that may not lend themselves to being produced on a mass commercial scale, but ones that taste amazing. More information here

Here’s some helpful information on how to grow tomato plants. Plant firmly, placing the ball of roots and soil about 25mm (1″) below the surface of the fresh compost. In beds or border, space the plants about 45cm (18″) apart, with rather wider spacing between the rows. Plants in pots will eventually need more water than those in the border, but the soil must never become waterlogged.

Tomato Plant Care

Once flowers begin to appear, the plants should be fed with a liquid tomato fertilizer at the recommended rate weekly. The growing point should be removed when five or six trusses have formed, as this will encourage the fruits to swell more rapidly and mature more quickly.

Keep the plants well-watered, especially when the fruits have started to set. Wide fluctuations in moisture supply may lead to irregular fruit growth, cracking of the skin, and dropping of the fruits.

  • Lovingly nurtured for 15 years in the UK, this tomato plant produces amazing tasting tomatoes.
  • Many taste tests have shown that these cherry-sized tomatoes are deliciously sweet & refreshing.
  • Extremely versatile, use the beautiful colours of this plant to decorate your garden.
  • Try planting these in ornamental containers or try hanging tomato plants from hanging baskets!
  • Loved by Carol Klien at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2019.

Veranda Red is special because dwarf tomatoes are notoriously lacking in flavour and not that nice tasting, whereas Veranda Red has the flavour of a vine tomato you would grow in your greenhouse, BUT on a small plant. It's taken 15 years to breed the improved flavour into this small size and it's from the breeder of Tumbler, Honeycomb and the Crimson family (hence why it's also late blight resistant). I personally think it's a cracking new variety and Nick has been working with Simon and growing it for the last year or two as well.

Basically it's all about bringing the flavour of greenhouse cordon tomatoes into a small, easy to care for plant without the hassle of training the plant or needing a greenhouse.
