65 Days. Prolific producer of 2 cm red, round, amazing zippy tasting fruit. Found to produce 'gamma amino butyric acid' a natural sedative hence its name 'Peacevine'. So have your moment of Zen, as if sitting in the garden eating vine ripe cherry tomatoes wasn't tranquil enough! Staking vine type (indeterminate).
This open pollinated cultivar has the highest vitamin C content of 30 comparable varieties tested. Use strong stakes with this one! Don't wear a white t-shirt while raiding this tomato as the dribble factor is quite high. Offspring of 'Gardener's Delight' and cousin of 'Sweet 100'.
Sow 5 mm deep. Keep moist; plastic cover improves success. Opt. germination temp: 18-25 C. Days to germ: 5-10. Bigger the roots at transplant (mid May) bigger the harvest. Prune sparingly. Protect from rain; water at plant base never foliage except foliar feeds. Heavy feeder; use balanced organic fertilizer. Excess nitrogen= leaves no fruit; no calcium=blossom end rot; extreme heat=blossom drop. See our tomato article under 'Confessions of a Mad Gardener' for growing information.
