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.
