78 Days. This short-stake determinate tomato is a consistent performer, especially in northern climates. It produces good flavoured, large, deep oblate fruit with a good blossom end and strong red colour. Red Pride has a relatively late maturity on strong, vigorous plants with good foliar disease resistance. 

Growing Tips

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks prior to the last spring frost. A soil temperatures around 24 degrees Celsius will help encourage quick germination. Ensure that seedlings receive plenty of light to prevent them from becoming tall and leggy. To harden off the plants, set them outside during the day, bringing them back indoors at night when the temperature drops. Tomatoes love rich soil, so work generous amounts of well-rotted manure or compost into the garden before planting. A soil application of gypsum or lime may help control Blossom End Rot, a common disorder that leaves large unattractive black blotches on the bottom of the fruit. Once all risk of frost has passed, set the transplants in the garden, spacing them 60-90cm (24-36") apart.
