Traditional Variety 'Alicante'
One of the best and most popular traditional variety, it will need support to grow and fruit properly. This variety boasts good flower and fruit development a very good yield potential, disease resistance, great colour and most importantly great flavour. Perfect for slicing to accompany a salad, for use in sandwiches or eating as it is.
Your tomato plants will have been grown indoors with artificial heat and light to make sure they are as healthy as possible for you. This does however mean that you shouldn't put your tomatoes straight outside when it's too cold. The general rule of thumb is to start putting your tomato plant outside for a few hours a day from the start of May to acclimatise it (bring it in if a late frost looks likely). If your lucky enough to have your own greenhouse you can start planting a couple of weeks earlier, and if its heated, even earlier. A nice high nitrogen feed will work wonders.
