A fantastic tomato variety! Ideal for patios and balconies

British bred, taking 15 years breeding to perfect, this is an incredibly productive little plant (up to 75 fruit per plant). Bred by the man who created 'Red Alert' and 'Tumbler'. Very early (mid-July) ripening. Sweet, cherry-sized fruits that were very popular in taste tests. Some blight resistance and resistance to fusarium and verticillium. 12–16g fruit. Loved by Carol Klein at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2019. Finally a great tasting, compact, bush tomato with flavour! Ideal for patios, balconies and anywhere else too small for a regular tomato. Can even be grown in pots as small as 11cm wide. No staking or support required, just water and harvest. Good resistance to Fusarium, Verticillium and some resistance to late blight. Bush Variety. Harvest mid-July–October. Height 21–30cm (8–12"); spread 31–40cm (12–16").

Tomato Care

Once flowers begin to appear, the plants should be fed with a liquid tomato fertiliser at the recommended rate weekly. The growing point should be removed when five or six trusses have formed, as this will encourage the fruits to swell more rapidly and mature more quickly.

Keep the plants well-watered, especially when the fruits have started to set. Wide fluctuations in moisture supply may lead to irregular fruit growth, cracking of the skin, and dropping of the fruits.

Veranda Red is special because dwarf tomatoes are notoriously lacking in flavour and not that nice tasting, whereas Veranda Red has the flavour of a vine tomato you would grow in your greenhouse, BUT on a small plant. It's taken 15 years to breed the improved flavour into this small size and it's from the breeder of Tumbler, Honeycomb and the Crimson family (hence why it's also late blight resistant). I personally think it's a cracking new variety and Nick has been working with Simon and growing it for the last year or two as well.

Basically it's all about bringing the flavour of greenhouse cordon tomatoes into a small, easy to care for plant without the hassle of training the plant or needing a greenhouse.

Live Plants

Dobies strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
