When we start exploring the wonderful world of heirloom tomato varieties, we may well find ourselves wondering why we were raised to think that tomatoes should be red. One look at Tigerella’s prettily patterned red and orange skin, and you’ll be in love with the way the tomato looks. But it’s when it comes to the eating that you’ll really be blown away. Garden tomatoes are always tastier, but Tigerella takes flavour to the next level.

  • 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.
