Oh no! I have discovered blossom end rot on 2 of my Patio F plants and one Tumbling Tom. With some research it looks like this is due to a shortage of calcium to the plant because of period of heavy rain and then some dryness. The solution: Mulching all the plants and spraying affected plants with calcium spray (purchased in a bottle at Lowe’s). Hopefully we’ll have a good report next time.

Perfect for hanging baskets and containers, this plant cascades 18 inches over the container’s edge, bearing lots of bright red 1 to 2-inch cherry tomatoes that are deliciously sweet. Plants grow about 6 inches wide, so you can place several in a 10 or 12-inch pot for a very attractive display. This is a great variety for gardeners with limited space. Determinate. 70 days.
