What's so special about our Yellomato?

The Yellowmato is one of the few tomato varieties that stays small while producing lots of tomatoes. The stunning yellow cherry tomatoes are juicy and sweet. 

Sowing and growing

Yellomatoes are true summer vegetables. They do best in warmer weather: the seeds germinate between 15 and 20°C and the seedlings are sensitive to lower temperatures. 
 
So, start your Yellomato plants indoors. You pre-sow them from the end of March to mid-April. Once they’re strong enough, you move them outside (around May 20). 
 
Tomatoes need a lot of nutrients. Give them some extra MM-Plantfood when you plant them, and add some more in mid-July. 

This variety only grows to about 40 cm tall. Unlike other tomatoes, you don’t need to remove the side branches (suckers). When the fruits ripen, just remove any leaves that are blocking their sun. 
 
Yellowmatoes remain white-green for a long time and then slowly fade to bright yellow. That means they’re ripe! 
 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use it?

Our Yellomatoes are tastiest when they’re firm and ripe. If you leave them hanging too long, they’ll get soft and mealy. 
 
Pluck ripe tomatoes right off the plant. The stem breaks easily when they're ready. Or, use scissors and cut them from the stems. 
 
Tomatoes can be used raw or cooked. They're delicious in salads, sauces, soups and stir-fries.
