    An Italian vine tomato with small egg shaped fruits that have few seeds. They are ideal for salads with sliced mozzarella basil and olive oil and for drying for winter use. Their great flavour will also enhance tomato soups and sauces. The fruits are typically 80-100g each in weight and they can often be stored for months.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow indoors - February to May. Sow 1cm deep in trays or alternatively two seeds per pot selecting the strongest seedling. Use multi purpose compost to cover seeds. Plant out in a greenhouse April to June
    They can be ready for picking in 72 days. If you like making lots of sauce try sowing this variety a second time too. It will crop and ripen well under cover until early winter.
