Alicante Tomato Seeds

[65 days] A medium-sized tomato very similar to Moneymaker in size and taste although produces a slightly earlier crop. 5A RHS AGM, greenback free and tailored for the UK climate it's clear to see why this has become a household favourite. Perfect for slicing.

Alicante is a cordon variety and will require support as it grows, support using stakes. Alicante is a true cordon-type tomato and produces the best tomatoes when pruned that way. However, if left to its own devices without any pruning it will still produce lots of fruits but these will be slightly smaller and will grow later in the season. 

Any later fruits can be harvested and will continue to ripen on the window sill.

Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").
