Tomato Seeds F1 Honeycomb

I first saw these gorgeous cherry tomatoes last year when they were introduced for the 2021 season by Mr Fothergills who sell at 10 seeds for £3.60 

This year Dobies have them as a New Variety for the 2022 growing season and are selling them at 10 Seeds for £2.99 so if you want to try these you know where to buy from!

This variety of tomato has a sweet, juicy flavour which has undertones of honey. You’ll see less fruit splitting than Sungold, with around 150-200 cherry tomatoes on every plant. 

Expect large, cherry-sized fruit crammed with that delicious flavour, and the orange-yellow colour makes them a striking sight on the plant (and in a salad for that matter...). If you like a homegrown tomato, you’re going to love these. 

Sow March/April for greenhouse growing (or April for outdoor growing) in a propagator on a windowsill or pots or trays in a greenhouse at 18-21C using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 6mm compost (Germination 7 - 14 days).   

Transplant seedlings singly into 75mm (3") pots. Grow on, finally planting into large pots or direct into greenhouse boarder, or outdoors 450mm (18") apart when the risk of frost has passed. 

Support with a cane and remove side shoots regularly. Feed with tomato food 

Harvest July - October.

I will be trying this variety in the greenhouse Quadgrow in 2022 especially as we are promised that there is less fruit splitting than 'Sungold'
