Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Tomato St Pierre is a traditional French heritage variety, it produces a good crop of medium to large meaty, red flavourful tomatoes. Its delicious ridged, soft, juicy flesh is perfect for salads, sandwiches, sauces or topping off a burger stack.
Tomato St. Pierre is an intermediate type that will require good staking and strong support as it produces a number of heavy fruits on each truss and as an open pollinated variety, seed can be saved and sown next year.
Tomato St Pierre grew really well in our greenhouse in 2018 although it took a lot of watering in the very hot summer to keep the bumper crop in tip top condition. It grows as successfully outdoors as it copes well with less than favourable conditions.
Tomato St Pierre is a useful tomato with good acidic flavor, juicy fruits and a very productive tomato plant.
Tomato St Pierre Vegetable Seed Information
|Seed Quantity:||Approx 30 seeds per pack.|
Sunny, fertile but sheltered spot or greenhouse/polytunnel.
|When to Sow||
January to April under cover.
|How to Sow:||
Sow seeds thinly in seed trays of seed & potting compost or 2-3 seeds in small pots and cover lightly with a little compost. Firm compost gently and water carefully. Keep in heated greenhouse/propagator at about 15-20°C. Transplant into larger individual pots when 10cm tall and 'harden off' plants for 3-4 days before finally planting them outside from May to June, at a spacing of 45cm between plants. It is best to plant deeply to a depth of 0.5cm below the seed leaves - this helps to give a nice sturdy plant. This variety can also be grown in a greenhouse in a large pot/greenhouse soil or grow bags.
Keep protected if frost is forecast with a fleece or a cloche. They require daily watering and feeding with a high potassium, tomato fertiliser once a week when the fruit has begun to set. Mountain Magic F1 is a cordon tomato that will require staking and support as it produces a heavy crop of tomatoes over a long period. Will require side shoots 'pinching out'.
|Harvest:||Late July to October.|
