Description

An extraordinary, crimson-skinned, Russian Tomato with incredible flavour and a firm, but juicy texture for the ultimate tomato salad.

This comes from the Crimea, an area of Europe with a similar climate to ours, so this is much better suited to growing in Britain, inside or out, than many Southern European, hotter climate forms. Harvest according to feeling for ripeness, not the skin colour as this can be misleading. My current favourite salad variety.

SEED PACKETS - Please note, when you receive this packet the inner foil has been incorrectly printed with TOMSWEETMIL, the seed inside is Noire de Crimee not Tomato Sweet Million.

Care Tips

Under cover or outside they need staking, regular watering and weekly feeding for best results. Pinch out side shoots as they develop and then pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses.
