Solanum Lycopersicum

50 SEEDS

Oxheart Red Tomato

This old fashioned indeterminate vine is a favourite. Heart shaped, solid tomato weighing up to 500gm each. Plant in good quality soil and apply a general fertiliser once fruiting begins.

Mulch well to retain soil moisture. For best results grow seedlings in punnets or trays and plant out after last frost. Staking will be required.
