Tomato Shirley F1 Hybrid

The Shirley tomato is a highly sought-after hybrid variety that yields large trusses of medium-sized fruits early in the season. This cordon / intermediate type tomato is beloved by exhibitors and home gardeners for its high yields of top-quality fruit, which boasts resistance to Tobacco Mosaic Virus, Cladosporium ABC, and Fusarium.

Sow the seeds indoors on a warm kitchen windowsill or a greenhouse. Sow the seeds in a pot around 0.5cm deep and cover with a thin layer of compost. Keep the pot well-watered and warm. An ideal temperature of 15 – 20C is perfect. The seedlings will start to appear after 7 – 15 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant them into individual pots. Keep them growing on in cooler but not cold conditions. If the plants get too cold they will stop growing and struggle to get going again.

Plant out into the final location from April onward. They can be planted in large pots, grow bags or direct in the greenhouse. The plant will need supporting and remove any side shoors that form. The top can be pinched out after about 6 trusses. It is important that Tomatoes like lots of water, good ventilations and to be well feed after the first truss has formed.
