Japanese Black Trifele Tomato Seeds
Info: The Königin der Nacht (or "Queen of the Night") is a very beautiful red-orange marbled beefsteak tomato with purple shoulders. The medium sized flat round beefsteak tomatoes are juicy and have a good, savoury tomato aroma. The plants grow compactly, can be cultivated with several shoots and can reach a height of 180 cm. They need a support, but are generally robust and easy to grow and a special eye-catcher in the garden and on the table.
Care: You can grow tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. The optimal germination temperature is between 20 and 25°C, and germination occurs after 8 - 14 days. You can speed up the germination process if you leave the seeds to soak overnight in a damp cloth. You should wait until after the last frost to plant your chosen plants.
Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil which is kept moist (but not wet!). They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more.
