  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    This tomato to show resistance to blight, an increasingly common fungal disease that can devastate tomato crops grown outside, particularly in wet summers. This super-reliable variety is also resistant to fusarium and verticillium wilt. Produces heavy crops of medium-sized deep red tomatoes with an excellent flavour: they grow just as well in the greenhouse, too.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot. Tie in to supports as they grow, keep well-watered and feed weekly with liquid tomato feed once flowers form. To ripen green fruit at the end of the season, cut the whole plant with fruit intact and hang it upside-down in a warm, bright conservatory or greenhouse.

  • Sow: January-March

  • Harvest: July-October

  • Approximate quantity: 25 seeds
