Medium early, indeterminate heirloom ready for harvest in 95 days after planting the seedlings. Sets XL, slightly flattened, round and edged, bright red fruits weighing 200-250g (7.05-8.81oz). One of the oldest, most popular heirlooms. Goes incredibly well with mocarella and other cheeses, in salads, salsas, sides etc. Beautiful old fashioned, meaty, full flavour consisting of well blending sweetness, aciditity and light, salty touch. Brilliant from the beginning to the end. Suitable for growing in green houses and indoors/outdoors in year round warm climates.
Season: Year round in warm climates. For temperate climates start the seeds 6-8 weeks prior the last frost is gone.
Soil: Sow the seeds using peat pots or sow in flats, using soiless peat-based mix (peat tablets). Alternatively, plant inside light, fertile, well-draining soil, preferably rich in organic matter with a pH between 6-7.
Sowing depth: 1/4in (0.6cm) deep. Store containers in room of 70-80F (21-27C) until germination occurs.
Tomato seeds do not need light to germinate! When seeds germinate, move containers to a warm, bright location with plenty of sunlight or under grow lights.
Light: full sun (at least 6h of light a day).
Watering: Water regularly to make sure the soil is moist, yet not soggy, as excess water causes the rot of the seeds/roots. Best to water, when soil is dry to the touch.
Transplant outdoors when seedlings reach 6in (15.2cm) tall and develop their first true leaves, after the danger of last frost is gone.
Fertilizing: Regular fertilizing is highly recommended to support healthy and robust growth.
