Big Malaka Tomato

Big Malaka Tomato is popular in competitions to grow the biggest fruits. I have seen 1.5kg fruits posted online. A large red beefsteak tomato of which I managed 750 gram as my largest.

An indeterminate regular leaf which produces surprisingly few seeds for the size of the fruit. Many Thanks to Sue Meese who provided me the seed of this variety.

Planted 8/12/22 and first fruits where 100 days after planting, Quicker in a warmer climate/season. Produced fruits ranging from 300 to 750 grams during my grow out but can be much larger.

Sow – Start on a heat mat ideally in late August to October (Cool Climate) and plant out after frost risk and soils around 10 deg at night (after 7 days consecutively).

Can start earlier if planting in a hothouse. 8 weeks on average from sowing to planting if using a heat-mat.

Spacing – 80-120cm

  • The wild ancestor of the tomato is native to western South America. These wild versions were the size of peas. Aztecs and other peoples in Mesoamerica were the first to have domesticated the fruit and used in their cooking.
  • The Spanish first introduced tomatoes to Europe, where they became used in Spanish food.
  • In France, Italy and northern Europe, the tomato was initially grown as an ornamental plant. It was regarded with suspicion as a food because botanists recognized it as a nightshade, a relative of the poisonous belladonna.
  • This was exacerbated by the interaction of the tomato’s acidic juice with pewter plates.
  • The leaves and immature fruit contains tomatine, which in large quantities would be toxic. However, the ripe fruit contains no tomatine
