Description

Cordon

There’s no need for blight to threaten your crops, with Tomato 'Crimson Plum'. This is the first blight resistant variety developed specifically for outdoor cropping. Tomato 'Crimson Plum' produces good crops of ‘Roma’ style fruits throughout the summer. The red skinned fruits have a lovely oval shape, with firm, meaty flesh and an intensely rich flavour.

This grafted cordon variety is perfect for containers or planters outdoors or in the greenhouse and copes well with periods of wet weather. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").


Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

How to Grow
Pot up, and grow tomato plants on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Alternatively grow tomatoes in patio bags and containers in good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2. 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 fruits have formed. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting.
