Rote Murmel Tomato Seeds
Info: The Mini Tomato `Red Marble` is a very sweet little tomato for snacking. Together with ist yellow sister they are directly breeded from the wild tomatoes and are therefore extremely robust. They are very tolerant of blight and brown rot and still bear fruit even under very unfavourable conditions. The bushy plants have an enormous growth; they branch strongly and constantly produce new fruit.
The small, round, red tomatoes are very sweet and are suitable for garnishing salads and snacking from the plant.
Care: You can grow the Red Marble 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.
