Product Description:

62 days. We instantly fell in love with this delightfully tiny tomato. Its miniscule leaves, flowers and ¼ inch, ruby red fruit are the teeniest we’ve seen. Deceptively big on sweet, currant flavor, they are a treat in salads, as a garnish or right off the plant by the handfuls! Sweet Pea is a charming, indeterminate plant with a low, spreading habit that lends itself to container living and especially to hanging baskets.

Sweet Pea

So far so good. Branches growing and alot of little tomatoes.

The teeniest, but a little invasive

These are very cute! I tend to think the Candyland Red variety is better for a teensy tomato. The sweet peas are kind of a pain to pick a lot of them & the plant tends to grow out into all your other plants if you are not keeping it well pruned. I haven't tried growing it in a container, but that may be a good idea.

So many little tomatoes

Sure the tomatoes only get the size of a blueberry but they come in droves. My daughter age 5 would pick tomatoes till she had enough to make a pizza sauce in the blender ant they taste so good and I don't like eating tomatoes of the vine but I seem to find I don't mind an occasional nibble from these.
I also grow out extra plants to give to family and friends each year and they all want this tomato plant. It is easy to grow and beautifully to look at.

Exuberant and Prolific

If you have children that like to pick every single tomato in your garden or have family members that will eat tomatoes until they burst, this is the plant for you!

I ordered the live plant rather than the seeds and was very pleased with both the delivery and the quality of the transplant. My first reaction was that this plant was too cute to be a tomato.

We decided not to train or trim back the sweet pea plant even though it is an indeterminate -- since we had room to spare, we wanted to see how far it would actually spread.

It's now about 4 feet high and about 6 feet across. We initially had it growing in a standard tomato cage and have since strung the lateral branches through two additional cages and an A-frame.

There are hundreds and hundreds of 2mm to 1/2 inch fruit on it -- the average diameter is about 1/4 of an inch. The fruits grow in tiny grape like clusters.

It was the first cherry tomato in our garden to ripen (it beat my Aperitifs by a week, and my two varieties of Indigos by 2-3 weeks).

These tiny, juicy fruits are bursting with a punch of incredible tomato flavor and are just plain fun to eat!

To reiterate, children in our family are like locusts and would eat tomatoes until they burst given half a chance -- this plant is the perfect match for them!

We will definitely order this variety again!

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
