Like the Crimson Crush the Grafted Tomato F1 Crimson Cherry has the best tolerance to late blight disease we have ever seen! But, as well as its ability to shrug off even the worst blight, Crimson Cherry will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large cherry tomatoes. A sweet-tasting tomato it is bred for outdoor growing. Even those gardeners who have had issues with blight in the past will find this variety more reliable. It's the tomato that everyone should be planting this year!
Grafting onto specific rootstocks of course creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack, and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly.
This variety is unique in that it has two resistance genes to Phytopthera infestans (Late Blight), giving it full resistance to all strains of blight currently found in the UK. So if blight spores come into contact wth the plant the infection will not spread throughout the plant.
It's been bred using natural methods and has been tested throughout the breeding process using Marker Assisted Selection (MAS).
Please note: With regards to the nature of the blight resistance, plants can still show infection (up to 15-20%) of leaves, stems etc. without effecting fruit quality or yield. The plants having the resistance to be able to grow away from the attack.
There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip. They require daily watering and feeding.
