This regular-leafed, large bi-coloured beefsteak tomato has an intensely sweet flavour combined with an excellent taste, small seed cavities and good solid flesh which is heavily marbled with red inside and out. After it won the American 2008 SSE Tomato Tasting competition, it was also commented that the variety "grows well in cool overnight temperatures". (Cordon)
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.
