Bio-Region of Origin: Kapiti Coast

Number of Seeds: 10

Description: Indeterminate: An outstanding tomato sent in by Wendy Evans in 2009, who found it at a market beside the Hutt River. The growers are regulars from the Kapiti Coast and this tomato is probably one of their heirlooms. It is Oxheart shaped, with fluted sides, and a delicious pinky red flesh, which means it is a ‘low acid’ variety.

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