Solanum lycopersicum


History: this is Vicky’s absolute favourite tomato variety in terms of flavour. The seed was saved from a tomato plant she bought at an open garden day in Hampstead 10 years ago and has been grown every year since. The fruits are a dark red/purple colour as opposed to black, with an intense balance of flavour, and some resistance to blight in growing trials.

When to sow: from late February indoors to early April if you will be growing the plants outdoors.

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

Harvesting: in southern England, typically July/later summer.
