Two of the best varieties with great flavour. Tomato 'Sungold' produces small, golden yellow-orange tomatoes with the sweetest flavour of any I know. 'Black Russian' is an extraordinary, crimson-skinned Russian tomato with incredible flavour and a firm yet juicy texture. Harvest according to feeling for ripeness, not the skin colour, as this can be misleading.
This collection contains:
- 2 seedlings of Tomato 'Black Russian'
- 3 seedlings of 'Sungold'
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.
