TOMATO – Santorini

(70 seeds)

$3.95

(11 customer reviews)

The best beefsteak tomatoes come from your home garden!

Could there be such a thing as low maintenance veggie garden? Heirloom varieties such as this one make it possible. The descendants of tomatoes brought to the Greek Island of Santorini in 1818, these beefsteak tomatoes will outdo anything you can get in the shops for sheer flavour and juiciness. The plants tolerate neglect with aplomb, reliably bearing fruit for even the laziest of gardeners. Allow them to self-seed or save a few seeds every year.

How to Sow

Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

How to Harvest

Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
