Tomato J Walsh


GENUS: Lycopersicon SPECIES: lycopersicum


Heritage Status: New Zealand

Bio-Region of Origin: Tauranga

Number of Seeds: 20

Description: Indeterminate. Sent to us by June Walsh of Tauranga years ago this has turned out to be a real beauty. It is a reliable heavy cropper, bearing large bunches of yellow egg shaped tomatoes (larger than an egg though) that can be enjoyed by those who need acid free tomatoes. In a tomato, those called “acid free” are those with high sugar contents.

Planting Instructions: Plant into trays late September and prick out at 3cm diagonal spacing when first leaves appear. Handle touching the leaves only. 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.
