    A breeding breakthrough that has produced a deliciously sweet campari tomato that withstands both early and late blight, as well as fruit cracking. It’s also a prolific cropper, with each plant bearing globe shaped fruits that can weigh up to 85g. An Indeterminate (vine or cordon) tomato, it is ideal for outdoor cropping and will provide an excellent source of vitamin C and lycopene.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse borders or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot. Tie in to supports and pinch out the side shoots. Keep well-watered and feed weekly once the flowers form. Keep water levels in the soil consistent to prevent blossom end rot. Increase water in hot spells and reduce in cool weather to keep the soil constantly damp.

  • Sow: January-April

  • Harvest: July-October

  • Approximate quantity: 6 seeds.
