One of the most common varieties of Italian Plum tomatoes, the fruits are of a good size and shape and are a magnificent Red in colour. The tomatoes are a base ingredient for many italian dishes.

Cultivation

Sow the seeds from March - 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.

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
