Another old favourite! This large, fleshy tomato matures mid-season with consistent smooth firm fruit. Tasty to eat fresh with itsfantastic flavour, they are best left to ripen fully. Oxheart requires staking and also watch that the heavy fruits don’t touch the ground. Tomatoes grow well on light or heavy soils but you will obtain better results if you add organic matter, some pre-planting fertiliser and the chosen site has good drainage. Excellent source of Vitamin C, A and E, potassium, fibre and antioxidants. Cooking Tip: Serve in salads, sandwiches or on dry biscuits as a healthy lunch or snack.
We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
Mr Fothergill’s Tips: Pick when mature to encourage more fruit.
How To Grow
Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix compost. Transplant to 10-15cm (4-6”) pots in a warm, sunny spot. Transfer to final fruiting position when sturdy enough. Space plants 75cm (30”) apart each way. Water daily, and when the first truss has set, feed regularly. Pinch out the side shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final position, especially your late crop. Harvest when red ripe, although slightly coloured fruit will ripen indoors. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
When To Plant
Early Spring to early Summer.
