Description

One of the world's prettiest tomatoes, its perfect, undulating, non-splitting form seemingly carved from red wax, this is the best-known Catalan heritage tomato. Highly valued by local Catalan gastronomes, it is barely known beyond the county, despite its top quality. Seeds for this plant are saved and protected by the local farmers themselves and are not widely available. A gloriously different tomato whether for sandwiches and salads, baking or stuffing, cut slices produce an elegant almost floral-like design that will fall on to your plate with delicate ruby-coloured pockets of sweet, juicy flesh gathered at the centre. Sprinkled with olive oil (and a touch of salt if desired) it is a gastronomic delight! (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.
