Description: Indeterminate. Another ‘wonder’ from Henry’s collection. This is an yellow/orange tomato, but quite distinctly three lobed, with variations in the colour which make it very beautiful. The fruit is flattish and medium sized, and very tasty. It fruits earlier than many others.
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.
