One of the best eating tomatoes out there. This old heirloom variety produces a dark skinned, purplish sweet flesh tomato. A great conversation starter and a good jumping off point to talk to kids about food diversity and heirloom vegetables.   

 

Soil
Tomatoes are very nitrogen- hungry, so prepare the soil by integrating nitrogen-rich pea or broad bean plants into your soil as a green manure. Alternatively, mix compost and chook manure through your patch a fortnight prior to planting.

Soil pH Level 5.5–7.5

Position
Choose a sunny, well-drained spot in your patch, preferably a place you haven’t grown tomatoes in the previous season.

How to Plant
Propagate in seed trays. Tomatoes are suitable larger pots, but prefer an in-ground veggie patch. It’s recommended to pinch out the first side shoots to encourage plant growth.

Spacing 40–60 cm

Depth 0.5cm - 1cm

Companion Plants
Basil
