Tomato - Red Alert Bush
This is a superb flavoured, outdoor bush (determinate) tomato which is very early maturing, ripening before the blight has a chance and heavy yielding. The fruit of Red Alert are smaller than average but have a vastly superior flavour and you can expect weights of 1.8-2.25kg per bush. It is easy to grow with no supporting or side shooting needed, in fact this is the perfect choice for an outdoor tomato.
Sow seeds 1.5mm deep in early spring. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots, gradually harden off and plant out after all risk of frost has gone 6cm apart with 75cm between rows in a warm sheltered sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained compost. Red Alert is a bush variety and should not have its side shoots removed.
