Our Grosse Lisse tomato seeds offer cultivators the chance to grow a classic and favoured variety, recognized widely for its robust size and balanced taste.
These seeds yield large, round tomatoes that have a vibrant red skin. Their flavour is a blend of sweetness and acidity, making them a reliable and versatile choice for a range of dishes.
Within Australia, Grosse Lisse tomatoes have shown great adaptability. While they naturally favour sunny regions with steady warmth, they can also manage well in cooler areas. Importantly, these tomatoes have a solid track record of resistance against several of the more typical tomato pests and diseases, contributing to a consistent harvest.
In the kitchen, Grosse Lisse tomatoes prove their worth. Their substantial size and pleasing flavour make them ideal for slicing in salads, grilling, or blending into rich sauces. From a nutritional standpoint, they deliver a good dose of vitamins A and C, alongside other beneficial nutrients.
For the best yield, plant these seeds in a mixture of rich, well-draining soil. A location receiving 6-8 hours of sunlight daily is ideal. Due to their size at maturity, staking or caging may be necessary to provide adequate support. Regular watering, ensuring the soil remains moist without being waterlogged, is key to their growth.
