What are Cocktail (Cherry) Tomatoes? 

Cocktail (cherry) tomatoes are pint-sized but prolific tomato plants.  They grow in a compact bush-like shape, but they can reach up to 200 cm high in the right conditions.

This selection includes a mix of pear, plum and round shaped tomatoes in red and yellow.  These are definitely a summer barbeque and apartment garden essential!  

Culinary Uses for Cocktail Tomatoes 

Cocktail tomatoes are so versatile and can be used in a range of cuisines, from Mexican, to Mediterranean.  We love these gem-sized tomatoes in salads, on bruschetta, in guacamole, and in Greek Salad (with basil, cucumber, red onion and feta).  They are a healthy, litter-free option for school lunches too!

Growing Conditions - Cocktail (Cherry) Tomatoes

As far as tomatoes go, cocktail tomatoes are the easiest to handle, as it isn't essential to prune unruly lateral runners.  However, with any tomato plant, you need to be prepared to give a little bit of love and attention.  

Tomatoes love full sun in rich, free draining soil. Plant in spring, after the last threat of frost has passed.  Asparagus, basil, beans, oregano, parsley, marigold, garlic, chives, corn, dill, mustard, aubergine, mint, sage, thyme are good companion plants for tomatoes. 

Stake seedlings, and feed and water daily in hot weather. If you are growing tomatoes in pots, remember that regular feeding and watering is critical.  Remember to check for pests and diseases towards the end of summer.

        What will postage cost?

        Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

        Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

        If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

        If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

        How often do you dispatch?

        To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

        How do you package your products?

        We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  

         

        Where do you deliver to? 

        We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

        South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

        While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

        We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

        Do you deliver to post office boxes?

        Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
