Product Description

Burnley Bounty tomatoes are an Australian cultivar. They have the classic tomato shape, growing to around 7 cm round with a slightly flattened top and bottom, with a nice orange colour ripening to red. The plant produces medium-sized oblong red fruit with excellent flavour and is tolerant of cooler conditions.

Burnley Bounty Tomatoes need plenty of sunlight and water to grow. Rich soil with balanced nutrients is also important for growing tomatoes, which are a rather nutrient-consuming crop. Burnley Bounty tomatoes grow well in temperate climates with a moderate amount of rainfall.

As with many crops, properly irrigating the soil and making sure it drains well is important to the success of the crop’s growth. Even individual tomato plants require good drainage for good growth. Too much water around the roots of a plant can kill it. Additionally, Burnley Bounty plants need to be staked so that they grow upright.

Burnley Bounty tomatoes need full sunlight throughout the day to grow. The application of a balanced fertiliser can be beneficial in areas with dry or sandy soil, and regular watering can compensate for a dry growing season. Burnley Bounty tomatoes can also be grown in pots or indoors, as in a greenhouse, which can extend their growing season greatly.
