Similarly, how tall do cherry tomatoes grow?

Correspondingly, do cherry tomato plants need cages?

The most commonly used tomato plant supports include cages made of wire or wood and bamboo garden stakes to which the plant's main stem and side branches are tied. Cages provide support on all sides of the plant and are available in different heights to accommodate all types of cherry tomato plants.

What month do you plant cherry tomatoes?

The weather should be around 70 in Fahrenheit and around 21 in Celsius when planting seedlings. If planting from seeds, you can start them indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last average frost date. They'll need two or three months of warm or hot weather to grow and harvest tomatoes.
