Tomato Chiquito is a newer variety of baby plum tomato.  The tomatoes have a firm flesh and a sweet flavour. They are a very versatile baby tomato, good for eating raw in salads and exceptionally flavoured when cooked. These are bush tomatoes growing to a maximum height of 1m.  The fruits are picked from August onwards, later in cooler summers.


Tomato Chiquito is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation.  The plants are suitable for grow bags and larger pots as well as the open garden.
