Dark Red Egg Tomato Seeds
Info: The `Dark Red Egg` tomato is a pretty, small, egg-shaped and tasty tomato that ripens red-brown. This variety is very versatile, delicious as a snack, in salads or as a sandwich, but with their firm, juicy pulp, they are also suitable for sauces and wok dishes. Stores well.
Care: You can grow tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. Cover the seeds only slightly with soil (max. 5 mm). 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.
