Description

A medium-sized, delicious, juicy Italian variety of tomato, which grows and crops very reliably here.

Another favourite from our trials. It's more prolific and easier to grow than other larger fruited kinds. Really best under cover, or against a south facing wall.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Under cover or outside they need staking, regular watering and weekly feeding for best results. Pinch out side shoots as they develop and then pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses.
