Tomato Maskotka

A small red cherry open pollinated tomato on a compact determinate plant.


Maskotka is a dwarf bush tomato developed to grow in tubs and hanging baskets. The small cherry sized fruit crop heavily on the bush. Suitable for indoor and outdoor growing where they will crop in an unheated greenhouse from mid-August onwards. Like many bush varieties, whilst Maskotka does not require pruning to maintain its shape, it can benefit from staking to keep the trusses off the ground and the fruit clean.

Its vigorous habit is similar to Garden Pearl.

At the end of the season, the fruit can be picked and most green tomatoes will ripen off-the-plant.

2020 Update: Maskotka is one of the dwarf determinate cultivars we decided to grow in 2020. Like all the plants they seemed to do particularly well with the first visible fruits on the 28th May.
