The sister variety to the ever-popular 'Buffalosteak' and 'Buffalosun', Grafted Tomato 'Buffalopink' F1 is a stunning pearly pink, Marmande-type beefsteak that is very early to ripen for its size. The fruit are produced in clusters of 3-6, each weighing 250-300g on average. Perfect for sandwiches, salads and tarts, the rosy pink tomatoes are large, uniform, ribbed and slightly flattened, with a delicious flavour. Height: 200cm (79in). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Our grafted tomatoes offer greater vigour, higher yields and increased resistance to soil-borne diseases and pests.

Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

Pot up, and grow tomato plants on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.

Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Alternatively grow tomatoes in patio bags and containers in good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.

Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.

Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of 'sideshooting' and 'stopping' will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
