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.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

If you have ordered these seeds, we have had unforeseen delays and they will now be available late March. We apologise for any inconvenience.

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.
