Description: Tomato Matina produces round and tasty tomatoes that ripen very early. The tomatoes have a firm outer skin, but on the inside, they are juicy and tender with a rich flavour.
Germination Rate: 95%
Sowing: March to June
Harvesting: July to October
How To Grow Matina Tomatoes From Seed: Seeds can be sown indoors in pots or seedling modules as early as February. They can be planted directly outside in pots from April onwards.
When seedlings get to about 8cm tall, they can be thinned and planted in their own pot.
Tomatoes need heat and do best in greenhouses. Therefore if growing them outside, put them in a warm sunny area of the garden.
Plants will need to be supported by a stake or something similar to help the plant grow upwards and then bear the fruit.

About our Organic Irish Vegetable Seeds
We are passionate about providing high quality organic and open-pollinated seed to all of our customers. The term, open-pollinated seed means, seed that comes from plants where pollination has happened naturally.
Benefits of using open-pollinated seed: These seeds have been around much longer than F1 hybrid or genetically modified seed, therefore they evolve with our environment. The plants they produce are much more genetically diverse and therefore will have a much higher benefit to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Furthermore, using open-pollinated seed means you can produce the same plant the following season from saved seed.
This is not always the case with F1 hybrid and genetically modified seed.
