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)
Cover seeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
