OH. This is for me, as for so many, the first heritage vegetable to catch my attention. First listed commercially in 1885, it is a superb tasting large beefsteak type. A favourite for sure. With potato shaped leaves producing fewer than average amounts of fruit, and maturing late, but completely worth the wait. Indeterminate.
Sow in August into trays in a glasshouse. Keep soil temp above 18°C for ideal germination. Prick out when true leaves appear to 4cm diagonal spacing. Transplant after last frost to 40cm diagonal spacing into fertile ground in direct sun. Stake and de-lateral as needed.
