Tomato Seeds

Sow from end of January with a heated propagator, or in March without. Transplant into pots at 3-4 leaf stage and then transplant into final growing position in May. For outdoor growing plant after the last frost (mid – end of May). Pots or growing bags are a popular growing system for gardeners, use at least 25cm pots for satisfactory results.
Crop History
The wild relatives of the cultivated tomatoes that we know today are native to the Andes in South America. They were probably first cultivated by the Aztecs and Incas in 700AD. When tomatoes were brought to Spain and Europe, it was believed that they were poisonous and were therefore only grown for ornamental uses. Only in the 19th century commercial production began and are the most widely grown ‘vegetable’ in the world today.

    Tomato – Black Cherry (Ecologically produced)

    Vigourous indeterminate cherry tomato producing large trusses of inch round dark red fruits. This is Fred’s favourite tomato. He could (and sometimes does) eat them all day. They have a superb flavour, not too sweet, not too acid and are very juicy in texture. They have an amazing colour which is the result of a natural mutation discovered by the legendary tomato breeder Vincent Sapp of Tomato Growers Supply in 2003.

    Large fruit, which remain green when ripe, with attractive yellow striping and excellent taste. In terms of appearance, this does what it says on the tin, but it does it very well. Fruits grow to around 8cm diameter and plants typically produce 6 to 8 fruits per truss. Quite fleshy, with very good taste and looks wonderful with other red and yellow tomatoes on a plate or at market.

  • Tomato - Ruthje

    Tomato – Ruthje (Ecologically produced)

    £2.50

    Tomato – Ruthje (Ecologically produced)

    A bright red greenhouse tomato with an exceptionally aromatic flavour. This variety was breed 1996 in Germany by Ulrike Behrendt specifically for organic cultivation. Flavour and resistance to fungal disease was the main focus of the selection. It can deal well with a low intake of nutrients which promotes good taste. The firm fruits should be left on the plant until fully coloured and will keep for a long time on the plant. They can be stored and will also after-ripen. The plant has strong dark green almost shiny leaves, and short internodal length.

    Ruthje stands out for its aromatic taste and was one of our favourites in the 2018 tomato trials. If you only wanted to grow one kind of tomato, this would be an excellent choice.

  • Tomato - Yello Submarine

    Tomato – Yellow Submarine (Ecologically produced)

    £1.95

    Tomato – Yellow Submarine (Ecologically produced)

    Yellow indeterminate cherry tomato that produces lots of small pear shaped fruits in large trusses. The fresh, sweet taste with juicy pulp and low acidity levels make this a popular tomato variety that will always look good amongst other tomatoes. The plant is a potato leaf type with an open growth. This is one of our most productive varieties, it just keeps giving.

    Great in salads and despite the unusual colour it makes a very delicious tomato sauce. However we end up eating most of them straight off the plant as they are so tasty!
