Tax included.

Solanum lycopersicum


Story: These tomato seeds were first gifted to us in 2022 by avid home seed saver Stef Matthews. They grew really well, producing abundant trusses of yellow, oval fruits that have great flavour. They are quite different from other varieties listed as banana leg but these are so tasty and abundant that we don’t mind. 

When to sow: February to early April 

Requirements: Nutrient-rich soil, regular watering, and a lot of sun.

Harvesting for eating: Typically July/later summer in southern England

When to harvest seed: June - Oct when fruits become fully ripe.

Need to isolate: No 

Saving Seed From Tomatoes: Allow the tomatoes to fully ripen on the plant then cut them open and squish the seeds out. Seeds need to be fermented to remove the sticky gel that surround them see our video on seed saving from tomatoes for the technique.


Please remember, if you’re an individual grower you can order up to 3 packets of seeds. If you order more than this, you will receive just three packs to begin with. This is to ensure we get plenty of data in return and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.* 

*Community groups and Experienced Growers can order larger quantities, please email us if this is the case. 

If an item is out of stock we will send a close alternative.
