Maisey F1 Tomatoes - New to Kings
Named after Charles Maisey who had so much success on the show benches over so many years. A good shaped and flavoured, round, deep red tomato with a good size calyx, already showing promise on the show bench and in the kitchen. Can be used for exhibition, if fruits are thinned to 5 to 6 per truss as this helps to get a better shape and size.

April to June
Where to Sow
Sow Maisey seeds under glass at 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays using a good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21C.
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 passed. Maisey tomato plants require the side shoots to be removed and then support plants to get the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
To get the best shape and size for exhibition, trusses can be thinned down to 5 or 6 fruit per truss.
