Product Description:

50 days. Bartelly produces intricate trusses that look like woven blankets of elongated, scarlet fruit. We counted one truss with 64 tomatoes on it, each measuring 1 ¾ inches long and 1 inch wide. A reliable selection for low-input cultivation under cover or in the garden. The vigorous, indeterminate plants will keep you picking these mild-flavored cherry tomatoes all season long! LM, ToMV 0.

Bartley is a winner!

Planted in April, this is a fast growing plant. I haven’t had any tomatoes yet , however it’s growing & flowering profusely. I look forward to a bountiful harvest

Just Like the Picture

Last year I grew two cherry tomato plants in addition to my full size tomatoes. I don't need that many, but I wanted to have extra to take to the food bank. I tend to take advertising claims with a grain of salt; who doesn't? But I wanted a prolific, easy to grow red cherry in addition to the always reliable SunGold. So I bought a Bartelli plant from Territorial. It arrived in good shape, and after a little time indoors on the windowsill--I'm in Seattle, and mid-April is just too risky for outdoors--I transplanted it into a 30 gallon black canvas pot. There actually are that many of them per stem! It's amazing. They're small, but I am not a fan of growing everything larger. The flavor is delicious. We ate cherry tomatoes every day for months, and I was still able to fill a couple dozen lunch bags with these and the SunGold in equal numbers. The people that run the food bank were thrilled. Nobody brings them fresh produce!

My large tomato plants all struggled, first with tobacco hornworms, then with blossom end rot, but both of my cherry tomatoes continued on normally. I've tried several varieties of red cherry tomato, and these are hands down the best. In fact, I still have one container of them in my freezer to add to spaghetti sauce. This year I'm buying seeds so that I can start them under my plant lights. I expect great things.

Good producer, but first to powdery mildew

I will plant these again, very high producer. The round tomatoes are pretty and perfectly sized to make a quick party worthy caprese salad when paired with mozzarella balls. They have more of a fruity bright taste than an umami deep taste.

Minus one star for being the first to develop powdery mildew of 6 varieties planted this year. The growth habit is also super dense requiring regular thinning to keep the plant healthy in the Seattle area.

Loved them!

Live outside Portland, started indoors in mid Feb, moved out in late May. They are HUGE gorgeous plants producing tons, more than any other variety I got. And they're very sweet delicious fruits. I would also mention that it may look like the stems of the trusses are being bent too much by the weight, but the plant can handle it and is very hardy.

Lycopersicon lycopersicum The first ripe, juicy tomato of summer is a delicious milestone of the season for gardeners. Each year we test and evaluate more than 250 tomato varieties to bring you the most flavorful, best performing selections, for every desired use.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
Common diseases: Early and late blight
Disease prevention: A strict 3-4 year rotation, remove vines at the end of the year, fungicide
