Tomato – Tigerella

Solanum lycopersicum


A spectacular tomato with striped skin and 'real' tomato flavour. Originating in Greece, this tomato has large leaves to protect the fruit in sunny positions.  Tomatoes are harvested between 7cm and 10cm in diameter.

Sow 6mm deep; Plant spacing at 40-60cm apart; Germination period between 6-12 days; Soil temperatures between 16˚C and 35˚C; Harvest time approx. 8-17 weeks

Tomatoes are best supported with stakes or else will sprawl across the garden. Tomatoes need a long growing season and are best started indoors in seed trays 6 to 8 weeks before planting out. They require full sun, well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter. Tomatoes perform best with consistent watering.
