Description: Indeterminate. An heirloom from the Bay of Plenty, sent in by L.N Lamberg of “Watermouth” near Ōpōtiki. It is a large, red, meaty (beefsteak type), tasty, disease resistant tomato that could easily become your favourite, we actually think that it is the same tomato as Waimana, and Peron. We can’t tell the difference, and Ōpōtiki is very close to Waimana. This is a famous tomato around the area. It’s a stunner!

When leaves touch, transplant into 10cm deep pots or trays to 10cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15cm high transplant into garden 50cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
