Growing Calendar for Tomato Arielle F1 Hybrid Seeds
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Love the intense flavour of sun dried tomatoes? Then this is the tomato. Arielle grows well indoors or outdoors, scrambling in habit, reaching around 1.2m (4ft) and producing lots of fruit on generous well-furnished vines.
Fruits will dry on the vine, intensifying in sweetness. If you want to harvest them however you leave in a sunny, ventilated position like near the vents of a greenhouse.
If left unharvested the fruits begin to dry as the skin has very small hairline cracks which allows the moisture to escape. The tomato begins to look like a raisin and with this its richness and sugar levels accelerate.
From late winter get hold of 9cm pots and fill them with seed and cutting compost, suitable for seeds that are just germinating. The compost has just the right level of nutrients to see your seedlings off to a sure start.
Position three seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep around the edge of a 9cm pot. Water the compost then label and date your tomato for future reference.
Put the pots somewhere that gets 18°C (64°F) of warmth (a thermometer is a handy investment for seed sowing) and keep the soil damp but not waterlogged until your seedlings reach a size when they will happily fill a bigger pot. From now on every seedling will require a pot of its own to grow successfully. Transplant again into bigger pots by degrees as your tomato plants develop.
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
