Tomato - Country Taste F1 Hybrid
It has an indeterminate habit and so requires support and sideshooting. Tomato Country Taste produces meaty, delicious fruits, which can easily attain weights over 227g if trusses are trimmed (trim to allow 3 or 4 fruits to ripen per truss). This variety is early to set and ripen when grown under glass. It is an excellent tomato for exhibition and competitions - you could grow a record breaker!
Sow seeds 6mm deep in pots or trays of good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator, or seal in a polythene bag, at a temperature of 18-21C until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 2cm high. It can be planted outdoors, 45cm apart once all frost risk has passed. Plants require side-shooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
