Description

This old traditional French tomato variety produces hardy, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants that bear moderate to high yields of medium-sized, 3-inch, red, round, tomatoes with soft, thick, meaty flesh with an excellent flavour. Although this looks superficially like a supermarket tomato, it has a truly great flavour, producing well in cooler growing regions right up to the frost. It was given a glowing report in BBC Gardeners' World Magazine in March 2008 by Pippa Greenwood. (CORDON)

Sowing Advice

Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
