BLACK MOUNTAIN PINK TOMATO SEEDS 50 Seeds
These deep pink, prolific, normally 0.2 kilo beefsteak fruits are very meaty, with an excellent sweet flavour. With care the huge pink fruits can grow to over 1.4 kilos, the very dense flesh being a beautiful deep rose with garnet streaks. This intriguing heirloom from the Black Mountain area in Harlan County, Kentucky, was found at an abandoned homestead in the autumn of 1993. (Cordon)
Coverseeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
