Sow in a propagator on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 18-21°C (65-70°F) using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 6mm (¼") sieved compost. Germination 4-7 days.Transfer seedlings when large enough to handle individually into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow plants on in a warm, light position. Plant out into grow bags or the greenhouse border when the first flower truss shows. Allow 45cm (18") between plants.
 

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers.

Rating:
A Beautiful looking tomato and definitely a talking point for everyone who saw it growing in the tunnel or on the plate. But there are two major drawbacks both of which may be related to the woeful "summer" of 2015. Firstly it tastes quite disappointingly bland, particularly when compared with other salad tomatoes I grew this year. Secondly it was the last variety to ripen, literally just ripening in the last few weeks. I may try it again as it does look amazing and perhaps in a sunnier year would improve in both taste and speed of ripening.
