‘Jolly’ is a distinctly
shaped tomato. It is a large cherry type with a peach shape and a
point at the blossom end. The pink colour is deep, almost rose.
The meaty tomato has a sweet flavour, perfect for salads. ‘Jolly’
has the distinction of being almost crackless. This increases the
yield of edible tomatoes. ‘Jolly’ tomatoes are produced in
grapelike clusters of 9-14 fruit. You can harvest the entire
cluster and use it as a table decoration. ‘Jolly’ tomatoes
give a gardener bragging rights for clusters of crackless fruit.
As an indeterminate vine, ‘Jolly’
will continue to blossom and set fruit throughout the growing
season. The vigorous plant needs to be pruned and staked for the
highest quality clusters of fruit.
