The yellow cherry tomato is a small, rounded fruit that is believed to be a genetic mix between Solanum pimpinellifolium and domesticated garden tomatoes. The size range of this tomato varies from a fingertip to a golf ball, and its shape can be spherical or slightly obolong. It is usually red, although there are orange, yellow, green, and black varieties.

Similar to the tomato plant, but smaller in size and equally smaller fruits. At the beginning of growth its stem is straight, but as time goes by it will tend to fall to the sides and become tangled with its branches. It has yellow flowers that appear at the beginning of spring, normally consisting of four/five petals, which will subsequently give rise to fruits that will initially be green and over time will turn to the color of the cherry tomato variety in question. .

Care

It is also advisable to use fertilizers, which will increase the density of the foliage and the quality of the fruits. A good example is a fertilizer rich in potassium (K2O. For controlled growth, it is preferable to use a stake that will properly guide the growth of stems and branches.
