Sneaky Sauce Tomato dwarf

Sneaky Sauce Tomato was a surpising find as the fruits did not experience any blossom end rot like some other paste tomatoes and makes some very tasty sauce. It needs very little seasoning to make great dishes.

Also very useful for making salsa, stews and canning. A dwarf that is easy to maintain with some staking. Plant two as yields where not huge but well worth it for quality paste tomatoes. Mild, sweet and meaty with a low seed count. Will grow to around 1.2m tall.

When to 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.

Cool Climate: mid JUL– NOV (Heat mat)

Temperate:  SEP – DEC

Sub – Tropical: MAR – DEC (Humidity induces disease)

Tropical: mid APR to JUL (Humidity induces disease)

  • Tomatoes enjoy lower humidity and 20-30 degree daytime temps and night times above 8 to 10 degrees. Plant out only after risk of frost (protect if late frost)

  • 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.
