Description


You may find it hard to believe tomatoes were once dubbed 'the poison apple'. Although a popular crop for the Aztecs; it took the invention of pizza in Naples for Europeans to start appreciating this delectable fruit. Your vigorous-fruiting 'Solanum Tomato Selena Choco', is a cherry variety which will delight you with a wealth of small, chocolate-red tomatoes from July all the way to September. The superb flavour of these fruit, as well as their fascinating, rich colour, will delight you. Bees and butterflies will be equally entranced by the bright yellow, nectar-rich blooms which will appear as early as June. This tender plant favours warm, temperate conditions, so gradually acclimatise your annual to the outdoors in the early weeks of summer. Suitable for a container, garden, greenhouse or growing bag, a sunny, sheltered location will ensure your solanum flourishes. Plant your ''Solanum Tomato Selena Choco' in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil and provide canes for support at your plant matures. Additionally, your solanum will appreciate regular watering and a fortnightly feed of liquid fertiliser. As companion plants, mint and basil are a brilliant choice, as these herbs will help to keep pests away from your tomatoes. Your 'Solanum Tomato Selena Choco' will reach a height and spread of 2m by 60cm, when fully grown.
