One of the most unusual tomatoes you can find, this stunning, red, bell-pepper-shaped tomato has vibrant yellow stripes, and a semi-hollow interior with a mild sharpish flavour, the seeds forming what looks like a shiny strawberry inside! They have a very long cropping season, are drought-resistant, store unusually well for very many weeks in a refrigerator, and are ideal for stuffing or grilling. What more can you ask for? (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.
