Tomato - Terenzo
This variety was bred in the UK and already winner of a prestigious All- American Selections award in the US. Terenzo is on track to be a firm favourite this summer, producing high yields of sweet, red cherry, tumbler type tomatoes. The floriferous plants will gently spill over baskets and containers with top quality fruits weighing 20g each are sweet and full of flavour. A resistance to splitting makes Terenzo an even more attractive option for the kitchen garden this year.
For greenhouse cultivation, sow from February to March or for outdoor cultivation, sow from March to April. Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C. Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
