Tomato 'Tommy Toe'

Winner of our taste test back in '93- Victorian garden guru Kevin Heinze said it was the best he'd tasted in 50 years! From mislabelled Seed Savers stock it grew to rave reviews around the world. Sweet 3cm fruit produced from January to May. Fruits in 10 weeks from transplant and yields 11kg per plant.

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.
