Tigerella has red skin with orange stripes when ripe. A slightly unusual looking vegetable, grows well outside in the UK and is easy to grow from seeds. Suitable for greenhouse and outdoor production. A heavy cropper and about 2 weeks earlier than moneymaker. Completely greenback free, tangy fruits. A perfectly round 'supermarket sized' tomato.
Sow the tigerella 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.
