Montecarlo Tomato Seeds
Info: The Italian tomato variety `Montecarlo` is intense red and has medium-sized, early to medium maturing fruits on robust plants. The tomatoes have an excellent typical tomato flavour and are well suited for fresh consumption in the salad, on sandwiches or as a snack. The plants need staking.
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.
