A more compact variety although still trailing, producing small rugby ball shaped fruits which  contain seeds but have a rich, sweet deliciously juicy flavour. Grown under glass each plant can produce three to four fruits.

Harvest 
July to September

Where to Sow  
Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting  1.5cm (1/2") deep in individual 9cm(3 1/2in) pots under glass at a constant day and night temperature of 21°C.                                                              

What to do next  
When the plants are about 10cm (4") tall, plant out into final positions into large pots or growbags under glass. Plants have a trailing habit, so require plenty of space if growing on the ground of a Polytunnel or provide some form of support and tie in stems as required.

Handy Tip  
Best grown in a Polytunnel or glasshouse , but can be grown outside in a good summer, plant through black plastic , so the soil remains warm.
