Beefsteak tomato costoluto fiorentino seed by Mr. Fothergill's. Big Italian favourite. A large, irregularly ribbed, Italian beefsteak with fruits up to 10 cm/4in diameter. Very fleshy with good flavour. Semi-determinate.
Useful Information: Awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit; Vitamin C
Sow and grow: Sow indoors March-April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in a pot of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Transplant to individual pots when 10-15 cm (4-6-inch) tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, April-June 60 cm (2-feet) apart, when frosts are over. This variety may also be grown in a polytunnel or cool greenhouse, but generally performs better outside. Harvest: August-October.
Hints and tips: This variety can also be grown in large patio pots with support to keep branches off the ground. Trim plants if they become too large.
Care and Cultivation: Do not pinch out side shoots. Support as trusses become heavy with fruit. Water and feed regularly.
