Baxter’s early bush tomatoes are as productive and pretty as it is painless to grow. Where other tomatoes get so fussy about setting fruit, these beauties have great weather tolerance and ripen to beautiful 3-4cm red cherries. Great tomato flavour – sweet with a touch of acid. Heavy yields of fruit that won’t split on a compact, determinate bush.
Make sure all your tomatoes are in a fertile bed or container before Christmas. Plant amongst lots of flowers and herbs, especially basil and marigolds, for companionship and gorgeousness. Feed your tomatoes weekly with comfrey once you start seeing fruit and be consistent with your watering.
