Tomato 'Green Tiger' (Organic)

Highly productive with superb colour and flavour, this crack resistant salad tomato is popular with Chef's and home gourmets for its versatility in the kitchen and ease of harvest and cultivation in the garden. A great all rounder for gardeners of all levels. Developed by tomato breeder Fred Hempel from California, USA, this unusual tomato is described as a saladette because of its suitability to fresh salads and salsa. Harvest when fruit softens slightly - but ultimately let your taste buds guide you as colour will not help you to determine harvest time.
How to grow

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before you want to plant out your tomatoes. Never plant tomatoes in the same bed two years running as you risk infection from a build up of pests and diseases. Tomatoes need an open, sunny position, with plenty of air circulation to thrive. Tomatoes are best in a bed which has been heavily manured for a previous crop such as broccoli. A soil that is too rich in nutrients will produce prolific, but soft, sappy growth which is prone to disease. Long, leggy tomato seedlings can be planted very deeply or even on their sides, as the stem is able to grow roots when covered with soil, and a large, healthy root system will develop.
