Tomato Gourmandia F1

Tomato Gourmandia F1 Hybrid.  An outstanding beefsteak tomato variety which produces attractive oxheart-shaped fruits with exceptional flavour, all summer long. Early ripening and extremely productive, you can enjoy the rewards of Tomato ‘Gourmandia’ from July right through to autumn, the chunky fruits each weighing up to 300g (10oz) when ripe. A firm texture with the juice held well within the flesh, these tomatoes are perfect for slicing and using in sandwiches or as a burger topper and won’t make the bread soggy!

Height: 1.5-1.8m (5-6’). Spread: 50cm (20”).

Harvest
July – October

How to sow
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.

For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.

Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3″) pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).

When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10″) pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.

When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 – 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8″) tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24″) apart. Drive a (5’) cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
