Tomato 'Granny's Throwing'
Also known as 'Periforme Abruzzo', this stunning heirloom tomato is highly versatile. A juicy, uniquely pear shaped, red tomato with wrinkled skin and a luscious flavour, while popular for pasta sauces and pastes, this tomato is equally adapted to salads and sandwiches and even roasting whole or stuffed. With ample flesh and minimal seed, this is an outstanding addition to the garden for anyone who loves to cook.
Tomatoes are a warm season crop. Seed germinates best at 20-25°C. Sow seed 6-8 weeks before transplant. Sow in punnets or trays and maintain consistent moisture and temperature. Plant tomato seedlings out when soil temperature reaches 15°C or more, and after risk of frost has passed. Plant in full sun in an enriched soil. Mulch and water regularly. Stake at planting.
