Le gasp. *Gisette* is trying a cherry tomato in an Aerogarden. Took me long enough, huh? I want to show how the lightscreen works on a cherry tomato, since that's what most people have experience with. And a steadier, modest harvest would be nice. Full size tomatoes take an awfully long time per fruit.
Candidate: Sweet baby girl hybrid cherry tomato, compact indeterminate. Two weeks old before installing in Aerogarden, while I finished up the previous mid-size determinate tomato test. (There was also a mid-size indeterminate grow before that - all testing the lightscreen design.)
I hope the fungus is cleaned off well enough. But picked a hybrid with high resistance to blights, just in case...
Aerogrow's mega cherry kit uses two plants. I'm unconvinced there's room for two, but we'll see how they grow.
Edit, 20130611: Just to clarify, because I received the question on another forum - I grew these plants from seed in a Park Starts block. I didn't buy transplants, I grew them in AG-compatible sponges, then just plugged them into the Aerogarden.
The CropLampSurround lightscreen (with beefsteak and cherry tomato seeds) is available for sale at http://indoorsalad.com. This isn't an independent review - I'm the one who created the lightscreen product. This is one of my test grows.
