Tomato F1 Hybrid
The red, one ounce tomatoes are produced in clusters like
grapes on the long vigorous indeterminate vines. The fruit shape is
unusual, an elongated cherry type. ‘Juliet’ has a sweet flavour with
an attractive glossy skin but the most important quality is the crack
resistance. ‘Juliet’ tomatoes hold on the vine with little cracking so
gardeners can harvest and eat more ‘Juliet’ tomatoes. You can expect
ripe fruit in about 60 days from transplanting into a full sun garden
site. ‘Juliet’ may become your favourite cherry tomato.
