Cultivation advice

Sowing

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.

Spacing

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

Harvest

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.

Seed

300-350 seeds/g. About 5 g for 1000 seedlings.
