Solanum lycopersicum Tomato 'Tigerella' (Mr Stripey) is not only delicious but attractive too! Completely greenback free, crops heavily and over 3 weeks earlier than 'Moneymaker'! It grows well outdoors or in a greenhouse in all areas and has a rich, tangy flavour uniquely its own - and the eye appeal of those clearly defined red and yellow stripes!

Useful/additional information For greenhouse culture sow seeds late winter to early spring 1.5mm (10/16in) deep. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C (75-80F). Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots and later plant out into grow bags, pots etc, at 45-60cm (18-24in) apart. Outside, sow early spring and grow as above. When 20cm (8in) tall gradually acclimatise to outdoor before planting in final positionWater tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed. Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of "sideshooting" and "stopping" will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
