    This tomato variety comes from Siberia. It germinates at low temperatures and grows well in cool conditions. The large, slightly flattened fruits are red, juicy and ripen early. The bushes are quite large and so benefit from some sort of support. We trialled some plants outside in addition to those we grew under cover and they performed extremely well ripening sooner than those indoors. Certified Organic
  • This is a very rare variety coming from the Amish people of Pennsylvania. A cordon, the fruit is slightly plum shaped, medium sized, pink/red, giving many trusses full of fruit. They have a lovely fresh sweet but tangy flavour. Excellent sliced for salads, but good cooked too. Certified Organic
