Jasper Hybrid Cherry Tomato Plants - Pack of 6
Sweet, Savory, Super-easy Cherries!
Jasper is a cherry tomato that has it all! Winner of a 2013 All-America Selection award, it is distinctive in flavor, texture, holding ability, and overall garden performance, including high yields and great disease resistance. In other words, if you're looking for an easy-to-grow, delicious, generous-harvesting cherry (and who isn't?!), Jasper is the one you've simply got to try!
These ¾-inch diameter round red fruits arise in clusters of about a dozen all over vining, indeterminate (they keep producing all season long) plants. Weighing just ⅓-ounce each, they are nonetheless packed with sweetness and a creamy smooth consistency. Very uniform in size, shape, and color, they look as good as they taste!
Jasper is very resistant to both early and late blight, as well as to races 1 and 2 of fusarium wilt. This makes it possible to grow in gardens where other cherry tomatoes may have been unsuccessful. And it's one less concern for the gardener!
And your harvest will never get out of hand with Jasper. The fruit holds on the vine very well, and also has a good shelf life after picking. This isn't a case of having to fill bags with extra tomatoes and dropping them off at the neighbors' doorstep! You'll be able to enjoy all your Jasper tomatoes in your own good time.
When you receive your plants, remove all packing material and set them outdoors in a shady location protected from strong wind. Water them thoroughly, and let them acclimate for a day or two. Then plant them in the garden, protecting them with row covers or Kozy-Coats if a late frost is forecast. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart. Pack of 6 plants.
