Heavy crops of large, tasty plum tomatoes
Bred by our own group this large fruited ‘Italian’ plum variety performed superbly on last years trials. The fruits set well, even under cool conditions and are juicy and delicious. High yields and a good range of disease resistances. For greenhouse or sunny sheltered spot outdoors. (Large-fruited variety.) (Cordon variety - One stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.)
For heated greenhouses sow January onwards and unheated/outdoor March-April at a temperature of 16-18°C (60-65°F). Transplant into 9cm (4") pots. Grow on and for the greenhouse, plant late April-May in large pots, growing bags, or border soil. For outdoors, plant in early-mid June after ‘hardening off’ plants prior to planting. Plant spacing 45cm (18”). Pinch out sideshoots (other than basket or bush varieties) regularly and when in flower tap or shake plants daily to aid set fruit. Harvest July-mid October.
