Tomato Small Sweet Orange

Bio-Region of Origin: Southland
Number of Seeds: 20

Description: Indeterminate. An outstanding tall growing, heavy cropping, tender skinned, orange cherry tomato from the Henry Harrington Southland collection. They are deep orange when ripe and again, this is a colour of tomato that has a high nutritional value. It is obviously adapted for southern conditions having come from Southland, however in a very hot summer it did very well here too.

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.
