Product Description:

70 days. An elongated, plump, bullet-shaped cherry that is large enough to slice, yet still small enough for snacking out of hand. Radiant golden fruit are drizzled with ruby streaks. Blush came in second place for its intriguingly complex flavor during our in-house tomato tasting. Indeterminate plants produce 2 ½ inch long, 1 ¼ inch wide tomatoes.

Every single seed we put in came up! All healthy, hardy plants! I’m so excited for them to fruit.

good grower but got the BER

Vigorous grower w lots of fruit, but did get Blossom End Rot, which was perhaps more my fault vs the variety. Did cut off all unblemished fruit and they did ripen on a tray, so still got some! Full Sun in Portland Or.

A Winner in a Cool Wet NE Summer

First time growing Blush - ordered seedling from TS. Tough summer with little heat and lots of rain and damp days here in New England. Blush was a winner - beautiful to look at too - ours are more light yellow with red streaks - quite pretty. No blossom end rot for me - I do add calcium in my initial fertilizer when I plant but after that, everyone in the garden has to fend for themselves.
Will be planting again next year.

My New Favorite Cherry Tomato

This was the first year I planted this variety of tomatoes and was very surprised with the flavor. My daughter and I fight over them. I will be planting them again.

The reason I gave it 4 stars was because it does seem prone to blossom end rot. My tomato plants were literally drowned by early summer rain right after planting, so that is most likely the reason for the blossom end rot. Definitely going to plant again though. I enjoyed the ones I could eat very much!

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
