How to Grow Cherry Bicolor Tomatoes from Seed
Bi-color cherry tomato seeds are a warm weather crop best if started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to final spring frost. Plant 2-3 cherry tomato seeds 1/4" deep per cell in fertile, humusy, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Cherry tomato seeds germinate in 5-14 days, transplant best starts to 1 per pot or 18-36" apart in the garden. Ideal in container gardening.
Cherry Bicolor seeds produce an indeterminate tomato crop. Before sowing, know whether the seed is determinate or indeterminate, as each will exhibit different habits. Determinate varieties mature to a predetermined size, producing its fruit all at once with only a minor need for staking. Indeterminate varieties grow indefinitely through the season, producing non-stop fruit while requiring heavy support.

They are very sweet, like sun gold tomatoes. Start Cherry Bi Color Tomato Seeds indoors, and transplant them outside after the final frost of the season.
Fruits vary in size, so pick them when they pull right off the vine, or slightly before then, as tomatoes continue to ripen after they have been picked. For best flavor, store picked tomatoes at room temperature.
Tomato seeds are the quintessential staple of summer gardening and arguably offers the most seed diversity among all seasonal fruits. Available in every possible color, shape, and size, tomato is a high-heat and full sun favorite that thrives from container and patio gardening. Along with cucumber and summer squash, the tomato plant is one of the most productive, hardy, and heavy fruiting crops of the season.
Harvesting Cherry Bicolor Tomatoes
Cherry Bi Color tomatoes are round, and they grow the size of a normal cherry tomato, but instead of ripening to orange or red, when ripe, they stay right in between, a mix of red and orange, slightly stripped.
Smaller varieties such as the cherry are ready to harvest at about 80 days from sowing while larger varieties like the beefsteak may require a few extra weeks.
Although vine-ripened fruit is always preferred, tomatoes can just as easily be harvested early and ripen indoors by being stored in a paper bag or box along with a banana for its ethylene gas. Ripest tomatoes may be pulled from the vine by hand, while more firm ones should be clipped with shears.
