Beef Tomato Seeds

Tomato ‘Red Pear’ Franchi Beef – Solanum lycopersicum.

This is from the hilly countryside of Bergamo. It is large, sweet, succulent, and a prolific fruiter – one of the best beef tomatoes around.

Slice with local creamy Taleggio (a gorgeous semi-soft Italian cheese), drizzle with Lombardia olive oil, add a pinch of salt, and serve with a good hunk of rustic bread – an authentic meal fit for a king!

These regional heritage varieties have real flavour and have been used in Italy for generations.

Sowing

Annual. Sow from February to May in pots of seed compost in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill.

Plant out into pots of potting compost when large enough to handle. Transfer into larger pots of rich compost, grow bags or direct in well-fertilized soil outside or under glass allowing 30cm between plants.

Stake, begin feeding when two trusses (flowering branches) have appeared and pinch out side-shoots.

When shopping can be good for the planet

We've taken care to source the greenest products to sell in our shop. That includes making sure that they're not overpackaged, or that they're made from recycled goods, so that they don't add to the waste mountain.

We also watch our waste at the Eden Project, recycling as much as we can, and even turning the food left overs from our cafes into soil through a giant composter!

Watch this video on how Eden 'does waste'.
