Persimmon - Tomato
Story: This beautiful tomato seed was shared with us by avid home seed saver Stef Matthews in 2022. It is a large, beefsteak-type tomato in a vibrant orange colour. It has a really good flavour profile for a larger tomato and grew really well on strong plants.
When to sow: February to early April
Requirements: Nutrient-rich soil, regular watering, and a lot of sun.
Harvesting for eating: Typically July/later summer in southern England
When to harvest seed: June - Oct when fruits become fully ripe.
Need to isolate: No
Saving Seed From Tomatoes: Allow the tomatoes to fully ripen on the plant then cut them open and squish the seeds out. Seeds need to be fermented to remove the sticky gel that surround them see our video on seed saving from tomatoes for the technique.
Please remember, if you’re an individual grower you can order up to 3 packets of seeds. If you order more than this, you will receive just three packs to begin with. This is to ensure we get plenty of data in return and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.*
