The Cherry Tomato Plant Height

Cherry tomatoes are one of the most popular vegetables in the world. They have been cultivated since ancient times.

One of the best known types of cherry tomatoes is called “miniature” or “tiny”. These miniature cherry tomatoes are very small and easy to grow. You can easily grow them indoors if you have space and time to spare. They are not hardy at all. However, they do require some care during their early growth stage.

Miniature cherry tomatoes are grown mainly in warm climates where there is plenty of sunlight and good soil conditions. They prefer well drained soil with a pH level between 6 and 7.

If you want to grow mini cherry tomatoes, it is advisable that your climate is cool season (winter) friendly because these plants need lots of warmth during the cold winter months to survive.

If you live in a hot climate, then you may try growing cherry tomatoes in containers. Container sized cherry tomatoes are easier to grow than those grown outdoors.

They will require less care during their early growth phase but they still need extra attention during the flowering period.

How To Grow Cherry Tomatoes From Seeds Or Cuttings?

Most people prefer to grow cherry tomatoes from seeds available online or in garden stores. If you are very careful with the seeds and the soil, then you can even get a successful harvest within 2 months of planting the seeds. This is not a common occurrence but it does happen if the growing conditions are perfect. Most times it takes about 3 months for the cherry tomatoes to grow into fruiting plants.
