Tomato - Country Taste
This is a beefsteak type, weighing up to 450g, which is disease resistant, with very large richly flavoured fruit. It is indeterminate (needs support), suitable for a cool or warm greenhouse and an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants.
Sow indoors, a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 0.5cm deep, thinly in a pot of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Plant out to large pots, growing bags or greenhouse border. Provide support, pinch out side shoots regularly and pinch out growing tip after six trusses have set. For best results provide a regular liquid feed.
