Perfect for containers

Day to Maturity: 60 from transplant

Determinate habit, but produces fruit all season long. Here we go—a fabulous new cherry tomato compact enough to grow in containers on the patio or back porch, with a determinate habit (meaning that it stops growing once it sets fruit) but an indeterminate fruit production (meaning that those new tomatoes just keep setting all season long.) Talk about the best of every situation: it's compact, it's heavy-bearing, and by the way, it's delicious.

Sweet 'n' Neat Scarlet Improved reaches just 10 to 12 inches high, but sets lots and lots of flowers and fruit on its well-branched habit. The little cherries are about ¾- to 1-ounce, arising in huge clumps like grapes. They will continue as long as the warm summer weather holds out, so get ready for a bumper crop.

Grow Sweet 'n' Neat Scarlet Improved just as you would any other tomato, but don't worry about root nematodes and other pests of the soil. You can just pop this plant into a container and be done with it. A great choice for small space gardens, urban balconies, and any other bright sunny setting, Sweet 'n Neat Scarlet Improved is well-branched and vigorously productive. Now, you will have to stake it, because it intends to set heavy loads of fruit for weeks and weeks and weeks.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 6 inches apart.
