Ailsa Craig is a heavy yielder of normal-sized tomatoes. Round, red fruits with excellent traditional tomato flavor. This is an indeterminate, vining variety of tomato growing to about 200cm in height and spreads some width-wise depending on how much of the suckers are pruned and the choice of staking and support. First introduced in 1908, the variety won an Award of Merit from the RHS in 1911. From Inverness, Scotland. Bred by Mr. Alan Balch. 60D. 10seeds/pack
Indeterminate tomato varieties will keep on growing the whole summer until the autumn frost. They will keep flowering and setting fruit. The sucker doesn't have to be pruned, but if not the plant will grow extremely large. 1-3 suckers could be spared along the main stem and the rest could be pruned. If not pruned at all the plant might tend to put energy into growing large instead of producing tomatoes on the main stem and the selected suckers. All indeterminate varieties could be staked or supported to avoid fruits laying on the ground.
