Strawberry Cherry is my all-time favourite tomato! I've never tasted a better cherry tomato- every fruit is a flavour explosion. It's incredibly sweet, but also has a great tang. In side-by-side taste tests, it beats sungold every time. This is a tomato I will grow every year for the rest of my life. It was bred right here on Vancouver Island by Metchosin Farms.

Cherry tomatoes are a great choice for gardens that have short seasons or only partial sun- they require less light that larger types. They will happily grow in containers as well.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors 6-8 weeks before planting out date. In southwestern BC, I plant mid-March for planting out mid-May. Seeds like bottom heat when germinating. Grow in full sun for best yields. Stake plants with a large tomato cage, trellis, or wires. Fruits are ripe when they are slightly soft to the touch and a deep pink colour.

Shipping & Returns

We ship seeds within Canada for a flat fee of $6, United States for $25, and internationally for $25*. Live plants and bulbs can only be shipped within Canada.

 

Shipping in Canada 

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.

 

Shipping to the US

We ship all US orders by tracked packet and they usually take two weeks to arrive.

According to the USDA, most seeds require an import permit to be brought into the US and the permit is free and useable for multiple orders/years. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held or confiscated by US customs.

 

Shipping Internationally

International orders are usually shipped via untracked packet. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held of confiscated by customs.
