Shirley - Yield 9 Flavour 9

Brandywine - Yield 9 Flavour 8

Whilst here I have to admit suprise that Moneymaker is scoring in the flavour stakes. They are the variety I first grew years ago.

Once I'd tried other varieties such as Alicante, I never touched them again.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Me too! Found them great yield but missing something in the flavour stakes.

My picks for flavour are Black Krim and Purple Cherokee... and Sungold for cherry toms...
Can't really put a number on yield, as it has varied from year to year... I usually have more tomatoes than i can use, so after that I stop counting  :lol:

They're on the seedsbysize website!!!! (extremely expensive though- only worth it if you really wanted to grow that type and save seed) I suspect they get around the "not being on a EU list" by automatically giving membership to everyone who orders, same as realseeds do?

EDIT: Hang on, they've listed them as an F1? Hmm.... strange that there IS an F1 variety thats not available commercially elsewhere- that doesnt make sense, does it?
