This classic heirloom dates back to the 1920s and has been a favourite of gardeners and farmers ever since. Not only does it produce masses of medium size globe fruits on very sturdy vines, it's resistent to many of the diseases that plague tomato growers such as fusarium wilt, late blight and blossom end rot. It's also one of the most drought resistent varieties of tomato you will find. If you have trouble keeping your tomatoes alive, then this may be the variety for you. .

  • 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.
