Tomato - Ailsa Craig
This traditional favourite produces medium-sized, green back fruit of perfect size and shape early in the season with excellent deep colour and noted for its vigour and the exceptional flavour of its fruit. It is a tomato suitable for indoor or outdoor cultivation.
Sow seeds from late winter to early spring. Sow 1.5mm deep. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 8cm pots and plant out into grow bags or pots when large enough at 45-60cm apart. Provide adequate support and tie in regularly. Remove all side shoots as they appear and restrict the plant to one main stem. Feed weekly with a high potash liquid fertiliser and water only moderately.
