Koralik Tomato Seeds
Info: The `Koralik` tomato comes from Poland and is perfect for areas where the growing season is short and wetter than normal. It has such a high tolerance to blight and mildew that it was featured on BBC Gardeners` World. High-cropping plants produce exceptionally sweet, large cherry tomatoes. Plants make strong, widely held, spreading branches rather like a small oak tree.
Care: You can grow tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. Cover the sseds 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.
