Tomato Buffalosun F1 5 seeds
Buffalosun F1 Tomato is a cordon beefsteak variety, with yellow - orange skin and ornage - red flesh. Great for outside growing as Buffalosun has a good resistance to late blight. The fruits are medium sized beefsteak, average 160g, and there are between 10 -15 on each plant. This variety can be raised outside, so give this a try even if you are new to growing tomatoes outdoors.
Because of the heavy crops this cordon variety does need strong support in the form or short canes or if you grow the plants in rows, in a form of strong net. Also the lower yeallowing leaves need removing towards the end of the growing season, this will aid air curculation around the plants and around the fruits to help to prevent blight.
Sow the Buffalosun tomato seeds thinly (1 cm deep) into a seed tray or in small pots or cells, covered lightly, watered and placed at between 15-25 Celsius on a windowsill, heated greenhouse or propagator. Sow February - April. Germination takes 8-11 days.
As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out. Transplant the ace tomato seedlings into individual small pots, later on they might need to be repotted if growing quickly and large. Make sure the leaves do not overlap. Temperatures during this stage should be 18-20 Celsius. Plant outside in June 80x60 cm, or keep in the greenhouse.
Keep watering in dry spells, especially when flowering and when the fruit is setting. Remove side shoots during the growing season and the growing tip too after 6 trusses of fruits have set.
