Cultivation advice


Sow indoors just under 1 cm deep 7-8 weeks before setting out, in February-March for cool green houses and in March April for outdoors tomatoes! The best germination temperature is 24-29°C. Let the plants stand in a light airy place and after sprouting preferably at a temperature of 18°C. After getting a few real leaves the sprouts should be planted in pots. The temperature can now be lowered further.

Temper the plants successively before setting out. Do not set the plants outdoors before the risk of nightly frost is over and the nightly temperature keeps above 7°C! Plant them a little deeper then they were in the pots and never allow them to dry out. Tomatoes get roots on the stems if they are allowed to get under the soil so overgrown plants can be planted lying with just the top above the earth. However, tomatoes which have been sown and set out too early often get disturbed while growing and that causes lanky plants and a bad crop of tomatoes. Do not hurry too much with your sowing if you do not have a really good "nursery".

Avhärda plantorna successivt innan utplanteringen. Sätt inte ut tomaterna på friland förrän risken för nattfrost är helt förbi och nattemperaturen håller sig över 7°C.

Plantera dem något djupare än vad de stått i krukorna och låt dem aldrig torka ut. Tomater bildar rötter på stjälken om den kommer under jord, så förvuxna plantor kan planteras liggande med bara spetsen över jord. För tidigt sådda och utplanterade tomater däremot, blir ofta störda i tillväxten och ger gängliga plantor och dålig skörd. Ha inte för bråttom med sådden, om du inte har en riktigt bra "barnkammare", med extrabelysning och möjlighet att reglera temperaturen.


Tomatoes need a mutual distance of 35-55 cm and 50-70 cm between rows. 


Pick the tomatoes when they are fully ripe and warm from the sun! If there is risk of frost before all the tomatoes have ripened it is okay to let them after ripen indoors in a dark, cool (8-12°C) place. The whole de-leaved plant can also be hung upside down indoors and harvested gradually. Green tomatoes can be preserved or used for marmalade or fried.  Tomatoes can also be frozen in pieces like peppers and chillies, without parboiling for sauces and casseroles in the future.
