Cultivation advice Tomato – Big Mama F1

  • Due to its size it is best grown under glass in the UK allowing it a longer period to fully ripen.  Due to its size it will need slightly greater spacing between plants.
  • Sow in early spring 1/16 inch deep.  Germination takes around 6-14 days at 65-75F.
  • Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots.  Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall,  position in the greenhouse  and plant out 24-36 inches apart.
  • Provide support and tie in regularly.  Remove side shoots and restrict the plant to one main stem.  In late summer remove the growing tip to hasten ripening.
