Balarga Tomato Seeds
Information: The tomato `Balarga` comes from Spain and is a medium early, red beefsteak tomato. The plants bear lots of 250 - 300 g weighing fruits with firm pulp, a bright red colour and an excellent taste. The variety is resistant to the Fusarium wilt and Verticillium.
Care: You can grow tomatoes at home, in a greenhouse or outside. Cover seeds only slightly with soil. Optimum germinating temperature is between 20°C and 25°C, germination takes place after 5-15 days. You can accelerate germination by priming them overnight in a damp cloth. The young plant should not be planted outside until after the last frost.
Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil, which is kept damp (but not wet!). They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more.
