Not too difficult to grow
Sow seed 0.1cm deep in pots. Repot if needed. Harden off and transplant 30-45cm apart when first flowers open. Choose fertile soil on a sunny sheltered site.
Keep soil moist and use tomato feed. Stake main stem. Remove side shoots from cordon varieties (not bush varieties). Remove any yellowing leaves and those shading lower trusses of fruit.
Remove growing tip after four trusses. Pick when fully coloured.
