Old Polka - Tomato
Story: This seed was first shared with us in 2022 by Stef Matthews, an avid home seed saver. It produces beautiful, creamy-yellow, medium-sized tomatoes blushed with peach/pink. The fruits are really tasty and floral with thick flesh, we loved them. Plants reaching 1.4m high. Garden Peach tomatoes were some of the first to be affected by blight in 2023 from mid August - this could be a coincidence. Check in subsequent years.
When to sow: February to early April
