Geranium Kiss is a dwarf tomato variety that does well growing in containers or pots if space is limited. This variety produces masses of small - mid size bright red cherry tomatoes on many trusses. Fruits are sweet, with not too much juice, but very tasty and are perfect for snacking, canning and adding to salads.
This variety needs to be staked due to the weight of the trusses which bear prolific amounts of fruit. Plants reach approx. 90cm tall.
Tomatoes are a warm season crop and do best started off in seedling trays or pots using quality damp seed raising medium. Sow seeds 5mm deep, all year round in tropical regions, July - March in sub-tropical and temperate regions, and Oct - Dec in cool climates. Keep warm and moist and in strong light. Seeds germinate in approx. 7 - 14 days. Keep soil around 20 deg C until germination. Liquid feed the seedlings once germinated.
Once all danger of frost has passed, transplant seedlings when around 5 - 7cm high. Transplant by planting seedlings deep, up to the first set of plant leaves, first carefully removing the original seed leaves. This can speed up fruit production and increase the depth of roots.
Ensure stakes are placed in garden beds at time of transplanting seedlings to minimise root disturbance in the future. Grow in well drained, composted soil, in full sun. Mulch well, and take steps to prevent fruit fly if necessary. Maturity approx. 75 days.
