Harvest; Jun - Oct
Matina is a delicious & abundant early salad variety with great flavour & excellent texture. It produces medium/large tomatoes of rich-red flesh with firm skin.
The plants have good resistance to splitting & cold and are ideal for outdoor growing
But can also be grown in a greenhouse.
Sow seeds in a heated propagator or warm windowsill from Jan (I usually sow end of Feb-March). Sow in a tray approx 1cm deep in compost. Tomato plants grow very large so don’t sow too many or you will have nowhere to plant them all.
Once the plants have grown their first true leaves they can be potted on into individual pots and placed in a warm, sunny location(preferably a south facing window or conservatory).
Plant out about 50-75cm apart into a cool greenhouse or outside from the end of May or after the last frost and the temperature has warmed a bit. If you decided to sow your seeds in January, they should be very large by now and usually quite leggy which is why I recommend sowing later.
Keep plants well fed and watered and pinch out side shoots on indeterminate tomatoes.
