I assume that cherry tomatoes are fully ripe much quicker than full
sized ones, just based on the fact that there is less to produce.

Just looking at my first trusses and the little green fruit and willing
them on.

Outdoors (but under a roof) in East Anglia - hopefully keeping the rain
off and the dreaded blight away.

Just over 2 weeks on and the first truss seems to be changing colour. :-)

I am hoping that fruit set to first bite will be in the region of 28 days
or less.

Right, I'll ad a further problem, I an growing a Black tomato this year,
just one, but my problem is that the young fruit starts out black so How
will I know when it's ripe?
