Tomato Consuelo is another exceptional addition to our range of blight resistant tomatoes. Producing a large cherry sized fruit, weighing 15-20 grams, they have superb flavour with a Brix level in the range 9-11.
Clusters of 25-30 fruit are borne on long trusses, with each plant yielding up to 150 tasty, bite-sized tomatoes. This variety is well worth a try as it combines excellent outdoor performance in Northern Europe with good blight resistance.
Harvesting time will depend on sowing time and growing conditions.

A crop of Consuelo tomatoes will take around 13 weeks from seed to first harvest, being one of the earliest to fruit. Although you can sow seed from as early as late December in a heated greenhouse, it is more usual for most to sow in a unheated greenhouse or on the kitchen windowsill in March / April for planting out April / May.
Some leaves may need to be removed if very congested and old leaves should be removed from the bottom of the plant as they begin to age. They should snap out like sideshoots. Doing this will also allow easier picking off ripen fruits and reduce disease risk.
Pests & Diseases.
The worst pest for many will be White Fly. Try to avoid it by making sure there is none in the greenhouse in the first place. 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 for tomatoes in general..
Remember! Beware of frost - Consuelo tomato plants are not hardy.
