Tigerella Tomato Seeds
Information: The Tigerella tomato is very resistant to diseases, in particular to blight. This makes it a perfect garden tomato for our mid-range latitudes.
The medium-size fruits display attractive yellowish red stripes, although these are usually difficult to see once the tomatoes have ripened fully. These make great salad tomatoes as they have a mild fruity flavour with plenty of liquid and a firm skin.
As the plants can grow to be very large, we strongly recommend providing climbing supports. The side shoots must also be pinched off regularly.
Care: You can grow tigerella tomatoes at home, in a greenhouse or outside. Optimum germinating temperature is between 20°C and 28°C, germination takes place after 6-15 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.
