Description

Cordon

This innovative new variety has an exceptionally high Brix level making it one of the sweetest mini-plum Tomatoes you’ll find! In fact, the longer that it stays on the vine, the sweeter it becomes, so you can enjoy the flavour of a ‘sundried’ Tomato picked straight from the plant.

The elongated fruits are shapely, with dark, glossy-red skins that will liven up any salad, pizza or pasta dish with an intense flavour and bright splash of colour. Tomato ‘Sundried Red Desire’ also makes a great choice for the patio, where you can snack on the fruits each time you pass by. Ideal for growing in the greenhouse or a sunny spot outdoors. Height: 200cm (79”). Spread: 50cm (20”).

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 truss of fruit has formed.

Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of 'sideshooting' and 'stopping' will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
