Tinker F1 Hybrid Indeterminate Mini Plum Tomato

OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • LEADING MINI PLUM VARIETY
  • OUTSTANDING FLAVOUR AND HIGH SUGAR CONTENT
  • INTENSE RED COLOUR
  • EXCELLENT YIELD POTENTIAL
  • HIGH RESISTANCE TO COMMON LEAF DISEASES

Tinker is a vigorous, indeterminate baby plum tomato variety especially suited for production under protection, but experience showed that Tinker can be grown successfully in the open field. Yield potential is excellent and up to 60 fruits can be borne per cluster when plants are pruned to two stems. Tinker is the preferred choice of leading retail stores due to the excellent flavour, high sugar content (approximately 10 %) and intense red fruit colour. Tinker’s fruit is unlikely to crack and weight approximately 15 g. Tinker has the ability to set fruit under cool conditions and has high resistance to Fusarium wilt race 1 (Fol:1), Leaf mould (Ff: A-E), Grey leaf spot (Ss) and Tomato mosaic virus races 0-2 (ToMV: 0-2).

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Tinker may be grown open-field when properly trellised
  • Adequate light and optimal temperatures ensure good flavour and colour development
