Suttons Tomato Seeds - Burlesque F1 - Pack of 10
These 'Burlesque' tomatoes are certainly big and beautiful! They produce an abundance of large (400g) beefsteak tomatoes with a sweet and tangy taste (Brix 6%). These whopping tomatoes are perfect to grow in a greenhouse or outside further South as they are also blight tolerant! The flavoursome fruits grow in masses and should yield 40-50 tomatoes per plant during peak season.
These tomatoes are thick in size with a thin layer of skin, but don't fret because these fruits certainly won't crack or burst! The meaty, juicy and tender flesh of this Cordon variety is scrumptious when served in a sandwich, or on a homebaked pizza with mozzarella cheese and basil.
Sow March/April for greenhouse growing (or April for outdoor growing) in a propagator on a windowsill or pots or trays in a greenhouse at 18-21C using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 6mm compost (Germination 7-14 days). Transplant seedlings singly into 7.5cm pots. Grow on, finally planting into large pots, or direct into a greenhouse border; or outdoors 45cm apart when the risk of frost has passed. Support with a cane and remove side shoots regularly. Feed regularly with tomato food.
