White Tomesol - Tomato
History: A large, white heritage tomato with an unusual shape, mild flavour and striking appearance. We grew this tomato for the first time in 2021 and loved it! They were prone to blossom end rot in the dry hot summer of 2022 but this was quickly remedied with mulching and more regular watering.
When to sow: from late February indoors to early April if you will be growing the plants outdoors.
Requirements: nutrient-rich soil, regular watering, and a lot of sun.
Harvesting: in southern England, typically July/later summer.
Isolation Required: 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.*
*Community groups and Experienced Growers can order larger quantities, please email us if this is the case.
