Tomato 'Orange Ray' / Striped Italian Plum Tomato / New variety / Seeds

Tomato ‘Orange Ray’ is a striped Roman or Italian Plum tomato with long sausage-shaped striped fruits.  These are indeterminate plants, growing to a height of about 150cm, with masses of fruits throughout the summer.  These brightly coloured fruits are great in salads and have a meaty texture.


Tomato ‘Orange Ray’ is suitable for growing indoors in a greenhouse and outdoors.  It grows well in growbags and large pots if regularly watered and fed.  Plants grow and produce fruit until killed by cold weather and they need staking for support.


Pack of 40 seeds.  Sow in January to March for indoor cultivation and March to April for outdoor cultivation.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Sow

Sow January to March for indoor cultivation and March to April for outdoor cultivation.  Sow thinly on the surface of moist seed compost and cover lightly with vermiculite or seed compost.   Keep at 16-18°C and germination takes 7-14 days. Transfer seedlings to pots when they are big enough to handle and then into grow-bags (3 plants per bag) or pots indoors, or outside, after hardening off and after the last frost. 

Grow & Harvest

Keep plants in a greenhouse or plant outdoors 45cm apart after the last frost.  Remove side shoots and provide support.  Feed with high potash fertilizer once the fruit has set.  Water regularly.  Fruits from July to September.  Pinch off the top growing tip of each plant in early autumn to encourage all remaining green fruits to ripen.  Remove plants after harvest.
