Olena Ukrainian Tomato Seeds
Information: As the name suggests, the Olena Ukrainian Tomato does indeed originate from the Ukraine. The large red to pinkish fruits are slightly ribbed, have a very rich flavour, very few seeds and lots of flesh. The skin is firm and can be peeled easily. The Olena Ukrainian tomato is brilliant for making salads and sauces.
The plants can grow up to 2.5 metres tall and have a very high yield. It is made all the more striking by its potato leaf-like foliage.
Care: You can grow Olena Ukrainian tomatoes at home, in a greenhouse or outside. Optimum germinating temperature is between 20°C and 25°C, germination takes place after 5-15 days. You can accelerate germination by priming them overnight in a damp cloth. The young plant should not be planted outside until after the last frost. Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil, which is kept damp (but not wet!). They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more.
