A Heritage variety from Ailsa Craig that produces non Green back fruits that or of a good size and flavour

Cultivation

Sow the seeds from Feb - May in a good quality seed compost and cover lightly (appx 2 - 3 mm) with vermiculite or compost.
Keep the compost moist but not water logged.
Germination will take between 1 - 2 weeks at minimum 16 Deg C
Once the seedlings are large enough to handle Carefully prick them out and re pot into 3" pots.
These can be grown on until late may June and then planted either outside once all risk of frost has gone or kept in a cool greenhouse.
This variety is Indeterminate which means it will keep growing until killed off.
Care of your plants -
Check for signs of Blight on the tomato plants - if you see any the plants should be destroyed and disposed of - do not put them on your compost.
A fortnightly feed with a tomato based fertiliser will encourage better cropping.
Pruning - The removal of side shoots will encourage better fruits . Some people say having upto 4 main stems is ok but this is a personal choice. I tend to prune to One may stem and let the plants make about 4 or 5 trusses of fruit per plant before pinching the tops out to encourage better flavour and faster ripening.
Tomatoes are an easy plant to grow and care for and these seeds will make tomatoes that are superb for cooking with
