Jo's Purple Tomato
Our chef Jo March found this vibrant purple capped tomato at a farmers market in 2021. We have grown it out and found it to be a tasty, large, Cherokee-like tomato, though even more purple than the official Purple Cherokee tomato.
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.
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.
