MORE INFORMATION
This 'Alicante' tomato is a superb all-rounder that will provide you with plentiful crops of delicious, bright red, medium-sized fruits. Easy to grow, this variety have a good resistance to disease and is a great choice for both beginners and experienced gardeners who want a harvest they can be proud of. Fruiting most prolifically when side shoots are pinched out to encourage an upright central stem that requires a support. Each plant will then produce a succession of fruit-laden trusses that ripen from July onwards to give a continuous crop. If left unpruned they will still fruit well, although these will be smaller than those of pruned plants and will ripen later in the season. Delivered as a pack of approx. 75 seeds. Sow indoors from January - April.

Care Guide

How to grow Tomato ‘Alicante’

  • For greenhouse crops sow indoors; a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 0.5cm (¼in) deep, thinly in a pot of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm (4-6in) tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Plant out April to May, to large pots, growing bags or greenhouse border. Provide support, pinch outside shoots regularly and pinch out growing tip after 5-6 trusses have set.
  • For outdoor crops delay indoor sowing until March or April. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out or positioning 45cm (18in) apart, when frosts are over.
  • Harvest from July onwards.
