Tomato, Roma ‘Sheena’ F1

Tomato, Roma ‘Sheena’ F1

Sheena is as good as it gets in a Roma tomato. It has large, smooth, egg shaped fruit and maintains a good size right up to the end of the season. Sheena is great for grilling, sauce making, bottling and passata. It is a determinate variety suitable for ground growing or on a 100cm tall three wire trellis or a pig wire trellis.

 

  • If you are having trouble growing a good crop or indeed any crop at all of “heirloom” tomatoes or seedling tomatoes bought from garden centres or big box stores you will be joining a growing band of gardeners.  The answer is to plant disease resistant varieties. We trialled 10 varieties of disease resistant hybrid tomatoes and the 3 listed below were the best for taste and for disease resistance. I was still picking good, ripe, full size tomatoes at the end of April.
  • The seed of modern, good flavoured, disease resistant tomato hybrids is expensive but it more than pays for itself in the vastly improved production of ripe tomatoes.
