Description

Semi-Bush.

An attractive, blight resistant variety producing long trusses of small, scarlet red, cherry plum tomatoes. The fruits are bite-sized, weighing in around 10g each, making them perfect for adding to salad bowls, lunch boxes or snacking on. Unusually for an outdoor variety they have a lovely sweet flavour, so they are sure to be a hit with the whole family. Tomato ‘Celano’ is a semi-determinate variety, best grown outside in a sheltered, sunny spot. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 50cm (20").


1 packet (5 tomato seeds) (KA2660)

Sowing

For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to April.

For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.

Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).

When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.

When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.

More Info

Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.


Semi bush varieties normally won’t need side shooting but as some can be quite vigorous, they may require staking and some trimming to keep under control. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
