It can be grown without support however it's best if staked in a sunny, sheltered spot outdoors. Roma tomatoes are also an acid-free variety.

Note: The VF at the end of ‘Tomato (Plum) Roma’ indicates that it is resistant to Verticillium Wilt and Fusarium Wilt.

How To Grow

Sow Spring to early Summer – all year round in frost free warm areas. Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix. 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. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
