Description:Visually stunning and super tasty, Midnight Snack produces cherry-sized fruits which start green and then ripen to red with an unusual and highly-attractive purple-black glossy marbling. This dark colouring is due to the health-protecting anthocyanin pigment which is activated the more the fruits are exposed to sunlight.
Sowing Info:Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator, or seal inside a poythene bag at a temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F) until after germination which takes 10-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3in) pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F).
Growing Info:GROWING ON UNDER GLASS: When growing in a heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10in) pot, or plant directly into the greenhouse soil. GROWING ON OUTDOORS: When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24in) apart. Drive a (5ft) cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine. Sideshoot regularly. Water and feed regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
