1 Packet (20 Tomato Seeds) (TX00773)
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. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting.Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.
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 tomato plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. When all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun.

Tomato Gartenperle 2011-10-18
Although they didn't ripen until late August, I've picked loads of lovely red tomatoes. I found the taste certainly as good as those you buy in a supermarket, and to be able to pick them from the pot when required was great. I propogated them on the windowsill in March, transferred them to the greenhouse and then put them in a sunny position in the back garden in big pots. Their skins weren't at all tough, a big bonus, and they cook very nicely too.

Easy to propogate on the windowsill, and trouble free to grow in a bucket or big pot. There is no need to pinch out side shoots and they seem happy in full or partial sun. Best of all they have a sweet burst of flavour when eaten raw and an even more intense flavour when roasted.

I pricked out all the seedlings and potted them up for friends and family anticipating a super salad treat, unfortunately we all found the taste rather bland. The best feature of this tomato is it's strawberry red colour, which when mixed with other cherry tomatoes gives the eyes a feast even if the tongue is not so easily won over.
