Remarkable tomatoes on dwarf vines: your pride and joy

Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, lights up at sunset, and its this magical colour that reflects in the Uluru Ochre dwarf tomato. Meaty and tender yet juicy, these beautifully-coloured tomatoes grow on indeterminate vines that make them ideal for growing in small spaces. But do remember to provide support for these plants. The heavy harvest of medium to large fruits means that the stems do need a little help.

  • 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.

    Struggling

    I purchased a few dwarf tomatoes, as well as this one. Unfortunately this one and red kangaroo paw, seems to be struggling. I lost a couple of plants and the few I have left don’t look good particularly after being transplanted into a bigger pot. I did use seaweed solution too to help but still struggling. If I were to try these again I would plant directly into a larger pot maybe or direct sow at a different time of year. Unsure if two remaining plants are going to make into fruiting. On a more positive note it could also be it is getting hotter here in Queensland as some other dwarfs I purchased as seeds form seeds of plenty previous have done amazing well over winter here and are still producing well for me. Striped Antho is proving to be a stand out. If you are a bit cold than in the wide Bay Area these maybe much better for you. If you up here try them in autumn and winter. I have a few seeds left so will be giving then another go in autumn hopefully it is more the growing conditions than the seeds. Which looked great and grow well initially. Thanks seed of plenty for having so much variety it is a joy to be able to try all these different types and work out the best ones for my area and when to be planting them and getting the most from them. Looking forward to trying out some other varieties soon from you.
