Moneymaker is probably the most famous variety of tomato. Well know for its heavy crops of medium size, red fruit of average flavour, it is a very reliable variety to grow. This variety first rose to fame (as such) in the 60's and 70's for its flavour and uniformity and has been a much loved variety by home gardeners ever since. When to Sow: January to April. Where to Sow: Sow seeds under glass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C. What to do next: Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set. Maturity: July to October. Handy Tip: Water regularly to avoid split fruit and blossom end rot. Shade inside plants in mid Summer. Feed with good quality Tomato feed after first truss is set. Nutritional Value: High in vitamin C and lycopene. Type: Indeterminate - single stem, remove side shoots.
