EARL OF EDGECOMBE TOMATO SEEDS 50 Seeds / packet
These gorgeous medium size tomatoes are a deep orange color, with dark green shoulders on un-ripe fruits. The taste is excellent, well balanced, not too sweet and not too tart with 4-6 fruits per cluster. When the New Zealand heir to the title of 7th Earl of Edgecombe travelled to England to claim the title, he brought this tomato with him and gave the seed to the Henry Doubleday Foundation.
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
