Info: The Alicante tomato is the perfect variety for beginners. It possesses all things you look for in a tomato, including a good disease resistance. It is a good and early producer of the medium sized, bright red and juicy fruits, which are full of flavour with a a great balance of acidic and sweet. Winner of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Award of Garden Merit. For maximum yield this cordon type tomato plant requires proper pruning.
Care: You can grow the Alicante tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. The optimal germination temperature is between 20 and 25°C, and germination occurs after 8 - 14 days. You can speed up the germination process if you leave the seeds to soak overnight in a damp cloth. You should wait until after the last frost to plant your chosen plants.
Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil which is kept moist (but not wet!). They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more.
