Tomato - Jaune Flamme
This old French variety gives early crops of apricot-coloured fruits, golf ball size on long trusses. A fabulous fresh-eating tomato with an intense citrus like flavour. The outer walls are thick and meaty, beautiful red-mottled flesh inside. This plant appears resistant to many diseases that normally plague tomatoes.
Sow in pots from February onwards. Sow seeds on the surface, cover lightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Hold containers in warm conditions until shoots appear, which may take from 3-10 days. Move seedlings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Pot on after first true leaves appear. At about the time of last frost, set out into grow bags. Do not allow the plants to get too cold.
