Two Kinds of Tomatoes at Our Backyard – Pet and Hobby 21

Fig 01- Two grape tomatoes ready to harvest.

We have some small projects in our backyard for this summer, one of projects is to grow tomatoes in the plastic pots.

There are two type of tomatoes in our projects:

- grape tomatoes with two varieties
- the cherry tomato

Yes, the size and shape look like the grapes that why we call as grape tomatoes. They are growing and producing fruits well in the environment such as:

- little bit acid (about 6 pH) soils
- loose and nutritious soil
- full sun (about 12 hours under sun)
- some amount of water

The size is small like grape tomatoes, but cherry tomatoes are round shape. It is said that the cherry tomato is hybrid of wild and domestic tomatoes from currant and garden varieties.

Fig 03- The grape tomato, a different variety

Cherry tomatoes are quite sweeter than grape tomatoes. Health benefit of cherry tomatoes like other fruits and vegetables:

- improve healthy hair and skin
- may lower weight
- increasing energy

From saplings to first harvest will take time about two months or little more. One plant and stems produce a lot of tomatoes.

The color changes from green to yellow and then to red by days. Very easy to pick when tomatoes getting red.

We may find both cherry and grape tomatoes in many grocery stores. The price quite reasonable.

Which one do you like?

  13. J'ai planté des tomates cerises dans des pots aussi que j'avais semé il y'a 2 mois. Ici les tomates raisins s'appellent tomates coeur de pigeons.
    Et j'ai aussi planté des grosses tomates Marmande qui ont beaucoup de gout. Bonne soirée

  18. Mmmmm ... both cherry and grape tomatoes are delicious and fun to eat and, unlike their namesakes, they are especially sweet because they have no pits. :)
