Description

Description

Moneymaker is probably the most famous variety of tomato. Well know for its heavy crops of medium size, red fruit of average flavour, it is a very reliable variety to grow. This variety first rose to fame (as such) in the 60’s and 70’s for its flavour and uniformity and has been a much loved variety by home gardeners ever since.

WHEN TO SOW

January to April

Where to Sow

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

What to do next

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

MATURITY

July to October

HANDY TIP

Water regularly to avoid split fruit and blossom end rot. Shade inside plants in mid Summer. Feed with good quality Tomato feed after first truss is set.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

High in vitamin C and lycopene.

TYPE

Indeterminate – single stem, remove side shoots.

There can hardly be a glasshouse in the country that does not have a few tomato plants growing in it, as nothing tastes quite like a tomato freshly picked from your own garden. The range of colours, shapes and sizes is obvious from the choice of 30 different varieties that we here at Kings Seeds offer. Even if you have a window box you can produce your own tomatoes. But, they are not without their problems; tomato plants are very delicate and can easily succumb to disease, they need a fair amount of attention and just a whiff of hormone spray from a neighbouring garden or field can result in deformed fruits and plants – but they are still always worth the effort!

Tomatoes are so versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be sliced to go into a sandwich or salad, chopped to be used in many Italian sauces such as a delicious bolognese or if they are a bigger variety, they can be stuffed and baked.
