Tomato ‘Rosella’ (Solanum lycopersicum ‘Rosella’) is an intermediate (cordon) tomato that produces these stunning burnished mahogany coloured, cherry tomatoes. Given sufficient warmth and light, ‘Rosella’ tomatoes are easily raised from seed. ‘Rosella’ tomato plants will thrive grown inside a glasshouse, polytunnel, or conservatory.
Once all risk of frost has passed, (from the end of May until the middle of June – in the UK) ‘Rosella’ tomatoes can also be grown outside in gardens or allotments, where they grow happily planted beds and borders, or in raised beds or containers.
There’s absolutely no need to use peat to grow top quality tomatoes. Tomato plants flourish grown in containers filled with peat-free composts or planted in a bed or border that’s mulched with peat-free compost.
‘Rosella’ tomatoes produce handsome, bronzed fruits with a superb flavour, a distinctive grape like taste, and a recognisable hint of wine.
