Plant details

Mirabelle' is a tasty cherry tomato that is easy to grow and has an unusual yellow skin that makes it an interesting addition to a summer salad bowl. It produces small, grape-like fruit in mid- to late summer, so start growing 'Mirabelle' as soon as possible to make sure the plants ripen in time. Gardeners living in cooler areas should grow these under glass or against a warm, south-facing wall. As with all tomato plants, 'Mirabelle' will produce the most fruit when grown in a soil which has been enriched with well-rotted manure or compost.
