Interesting name? The "dwarf" comes from the size of the plants, which are compact enough to grow in pots. The "Antho" comes from the purple blush on the skins, and take it from us, it's pretty! As for the stripes, that comes from the gorgeous striping between yellow and red - rather like an apple in appearance. What the name doesn't tell you is that each fruit weighs around 100g (not enormous, but a good size) and the flavour which is earthy with a sweetish tang.

  • Growing Information

    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.

    Very good germination, strong healthy plants. they seemed to be ready to flower but are at a stand still. I blame this on the dry unsettled weather we are experiencing, and I am not sure how much water they require

    Haven't planted them yet, but I know I'll love them, because I love weird tomatoes.
