Sun Sugar is an orange cherry variety similar to Sun Gold, but is reported to have less splitting of the fruit. Supersweet 100 is a classic red cherry variety.
March 26, 2015 = Day 0. Plants started from seed. Sun Sugar (Urban Farmer), Supersweet 100 (Botanical Interests). Moistened with dilute fertilizer: Dyna-Gro Liquid GROW 7-9-5, diluted 1 mL (1/5 tsp) per gallon of tap water. N-P-K (in ppm): 18-10-11. pH = 7.0.
Mar 30, 2015 = Day 4. Seeds germinated. Transferred to grow room, receiving 14 hours LED grow-light per day.
April 10, 2015 = Day 14. Plants installed outside in 32-gallon buckets. Hydroponic solution composed of 32 gal tap water, 64 g MasterBlend 4-18-38, 64 g calcium nitrate, 32 g magnesium sulfate, 6.4 mL Dyna-Gro Pro-TeKt, 25 mL pH Down. N-P-K (in ppm): 103-41-168. pH = 6.5.
Jul 4, 2015 = Day 99. Began harvesting tomatoes.
Big harvests continued until around mid-August (day 120-130), when production of tomatoes slowed down. The buckets got light a few times, indicating low fluid level, so I had to add 5 gallons several times. Plants were discarded at the end of August, due to lack of new tomatoes. Total water usage per plant = 50 gallons.
