Description: They came to NZ with the Croatian gumdiggers in the late 1800’s and in my opinion are one of our our best ever tomatoes. They have outstanding flavour, are super beefy and large with unusual red colourings and irregular shapes.
Planting Instructions: Plant into trays late September and prick out when first leaves appear at 3 cm diagonal spacing. Handle touching the leaves only. When leaves touch, transplant into 10 cm deep pots or trays to 10 cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15 cm high transplant into garden 50 cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
