A good all purpose variety producing medium sized fruit of exceptionally fine flavour and good deep colour. Vigorous growing and suitable for both indoor and outdoor growing.
Fill a 6-9cm pot or individual modules with seed compost – which is light and contains a small but balance level of nutrients in the soil. Fill to leave a gap at the top of about 1cm (1/2in).
Submerge the pots or module trays into a tray of water beneath so that the soil slowly absorbs the moisture from the bottom without disturbing the soil on top.
Press the seed/s into the soil to a depth of about 2cm using a dibber or pencil.
Water above with a fine hose and add fungicide to the first watering to guard against the disease called damping off.
Cover the seeds with more of the seed-compost.
Label and date the seeds and place in a cool light place.
