This beautiful, tasty and very rare variety bears chocolate/mahogany brown fluted fruits with ruffled olive shoulders. The tall, regular-leaf plants bear heavy trusses of medium to large, slightly flattened, irregular-shaped, beefsteak tomatoes, that have strong, wonderful, fruit-sweet, complex tangy flavours. Plant World proprietor, Mr. Ray Brown says that it is a good slicer making delicious sandwiches. (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.
