Tomato, Chadwick’s Cherry (Lycopersicon esculentum) seeds, organic

(1 customer review)

$3.95$26.10

Family:  Nightshade (Solanaceae)

Vining annual, 80 days to harvest.

The late Alan Chadwick was a great man and full of heart and wit.  He was the originator of the biointensive gardening method and also bred this incredible tomato, which was consumed with great lust by himself and his students at UC Santa Cruz.  Bright red, large sized cherry tomatoes are produced early in the season.  They are presented as sturdy clusters of 6.  We rate this tomato 5 out of a possible 5 on the basis of taste.  Excellent consumed fresh or halved and sun-dried.  These are very easy to work with when dehydrating as they dry fast but are large enough to give substantial return.  Standard tomato culture, trellis.

      Yes, Chadwick Cherries are quite robust and I’ve grown them for 30 years without failing once. I do know about blight and end rot though, they are indeed a nuisance. r

    Exceptional germination

    Ben Feldman

    I’ve had 100% success in germinating these tomatoes.

    Method:
    (1) Loosely fill propagation inserts (1″ okay) with growing media. I prefer a 2 tray system (one mesh tray sitting inside a tray with no drainage) that hold the inserts.
    (2) Using small tool (think chopstick), create a hole just smaller than a pencil eraser where you want to plant the seed.
    (3) Using very clean hands, drop a single seed into each hole, careful to not squeeze them.
    (4) Cover the seed with soil (use chopstick to gently push soil back over seed).
    (5) Add purified water to the tray system and wait for the soil substrate to saturate via wicking (set a timer for 10 minutes – soil will be obviously moist).
    (6) Remove mesh insert that contains the soil inserts and pour off water from bottom tray. Place mesh insert with soil inserts back into tray system.
    (7) Place tray system in a warm environment with stable temperatures AND light. I’m using a 6500k shoplight on for 14 hours/day at 22-23 celcius day temp and 18c night temp.

    I hope this helps!
