Tasty black tomato variety, fruits are slightly flattened on the top and are typically smaller than most other beefsteak varieties. Treat as Indeterminate/cordon tomato plant and train single stem up cane or steak, for best results, remove sucker shoots and pinch out the growing tip when 4 trusses have formed. As with all beefsteak tomato varieties, a longer growing period is required as well as regular feeding.
Indeterminate/cordon beefsteak hybrid variety that produces very large deep red fruits. Fruits are smooth and spherical and have a very sweet taste.

Tigerella tomatoes are an heirloom variety originating in England. When they have ripened they are red with yellow or light green stripes. This variety should not just be thought of as a novelty, Tigerella is actually a high yielding variety with great flavor. Fruits grow to approximately 5 cm in diameter and the flesh is dense and firm, making it a great tomato for slicing. Tigerella is an indeterminate variety (rather than bush) which means it needs to be grown up a cordon or steak. Pinch out the growing tip of the plant when 4 or 5 trusses have formed. Ideally suited for growing in a green house in cooler climates, if growing outside let leave just 3 trusses. Early to mature with a long cropping period and particularly disease resistant, Tigerella is a great all-rounder and with the added bonus of its striking appearance. One thing to note is that the colors and size of this variety tend to vary in different parts of the world.
