Tomato - Costoluto Genovese (Seeds)
Heirloom Vegetable. Variety originated in Italy. Deep red, heavily ribbed somewhat flattened fruit to 200 g (7 oz) will not win a beauty contest. It is the delightfully tangy, richly flavoured taste that is a winner! Superb fresh, sauced, canned, juiced or preserved. Indeterminate growth. Matures in 90 days.
How to Grow
Start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6-8 weeks before last frost. Grow on under lights before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site outside after the danger of frost has passed. Seed typically sprouts in 5-10 days.
Planting Depth: 6 mm (1/4”). Seed Spacing 7.5 cm (3”). Transplant to: 90 cm (36”). Row Width: 90 cm (36”).
COMMENTS: Plants require sturdy support. Keep soil evenly moist – to help prevent foliar diseases, water the soil, not the leaves. Long harvest period.
