Bistecca Tomato Seeds
Information: Tomato `Bistecca` is a beautiful Italian beefsteak tomato heirloom variety. The large plants bear round flattend bright red and slightly ribbed beefsteak tomatoes, which weigh about 250 g. Bistecca tomatoes need staking, love the warmth and therefore a location in full sun and sheltered and need to be pruned regularly.
Care: You can grow tomatoes at home, in a greenhouse or outside. Cover seeds only slightly with soil. 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.
