Tomato Ildi

Description

This variety of tomatoes produces small, yellow plum-shaped fruit with a beautifully sweet flavour. Ildi produces a very heavy crop of approximately 80 fruits per truss and 3-4 trusses per plant! This tomato is also ideal for containers on the patio and replaces Yellow Cocktail. The trusses keep well once picked and if hung in the shed the tomatoes will keep for a while without dropping. Ildi would look perfect sprinkled over a summer salad like jewels.

When to Sow

January to April

Where to Sow

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

What to do next

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

Maturity

July to October

Handy Tip

One of the few varieties where trusses keep well and can be picked, hung in a cool garage and kept for weeks without the fruit dropping.

Nutritional Values

Very high in vitamin C and lycopene.

Type

Indeterminate - single stem, remove side shoots.
