Organic Tomato – Moneymaker
This is a well-known variety that reliably produces plenty of smooth, medium-size fruit throughout the summer. Tomato 'Moneymaker' gained popularity in the 60's and 70's for its uniformity and exceptional flavour, and remains a much-loved garden variety today. Grow this versatile tomato as a cordon in the greenhouse or outdoors. Height: 200cm. Spread: 50cm.
Sow seeds from March to May, in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost, and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place in a propagator at 18-20C until germination, which takes up to 10 days. Transplant seedlings into small pots or cells until plants are about 1cm high. Then plant outdoors 6cm apart once frost risk has passed, or in a growbag in the greenhouse. Support plant with a stout cane and remove shoots between the leaf axils (side shoots) regularly. Pick fruits regularly to extend the season.
