Tomato Solito is a rather unique semi-determine variety that's been bred in the UK for blight resistance.
Its orange coloured fruits have a brix of 10 - 11%, putting it on a par near Sungold for sweetness.
Plant in large containers and allow to ramble. Produces high yields of tasty fruits.

35cm and above - 1 Plant
A crop of Solito tomatoes takes around 13 - 14 weeks from seed to first harvest. Although you can sow seed from as early as late December for growing in a heated greenhouse, it is more usual to sow this variety in a unheated greenhouse or on the kitchen windowsill in March - April for planting outside in containers in May.
Pests & Diseases.
The worst pest for many will be White Fly and Green Fly. Many sprays are sold but the pest is not easy to control. SB Plant Invigorator is one of the best and tends to reduce White Fly and aphids, whilst at the same time giving a light feed of nitrogen.
The major disease under glass is Botrytis or Grey Mould. The spores are everywhere so there is no way to keep it out, but it needs a film of moisture and warmth to develop. Good ventilation and good hygiene can do a great deal to keep it at bay. A fungicide can be used if needed.
Although largely a disease of outdoor tomatoes, Potato Blight can be a problem under glass in some years.
Remember! Beware of frost - Solito tomato plants are not hardy.
