Tomato Raspberry Oxheart 100 seeds
This is an heart shaped tomato. The colour of the skin and flesh is somewhat raspberry pink. The juicy fruits are excellent for fresh consumption (a great slicer tomato) and for making your favourite sauce too. Once you try this variety chances are that it will be on your to grow list year after year. The indeterminate plants produce fruits weighing up to 200g. A great variety to grow outside. A very popular variety in the Baltic states and also in Russia. We have an other very popular beefsteak type tomato the Black Krim tomato, which has dark purple - brown skin and a distinctive flavour.
Sow the Tomato seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells, covered lightly, watered and placed at between 10-18 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 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. Temperature during this stage should be 12-20 Celsius. Plant outside mid-May-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 and stop the plant growth when 5 trusses have set.
