Sweet million tomatoes grown in greenhouse Yield 10 Flavour 10.

Tried to grow several other varieties outdoors but did not have any success due to the awful weather so will not rate them as would not be fair.

Garden Peach                    4          2         


I grow two/three of each plant. The Summer Cider are far and away the nicest tomato (and BIG - 12 oz plus) but they are very late - they didn't start to ripen until mid October this year).

Pink Brandywine are the heaviest cropper, I got over 20lbs off two plants - 5 trusses to a plant.

Looking forward to the results - need to find something to replace Garden Peach.

Ferline yield 8 flavour 9 (much better tasting than last year, not sure why)

Latah yield 5 flavour 6 (not nearly as good as last year)

Also grew some Latah x Irish Gardeners Delight that I got from Real Seeds - last year these were far and away the best tomato I have ever tasted but this year they only scored yield 8 and flavour 7.

Not sure what to conclude from that, except that perhaps growing conditions are as important as seed in determining taste.

Bit of a difficult year for outdoor tomatoes, due to wind early in year, and a touch of botrytis.

My results:

Stupice    Yield:  6     Taste:  8

Aurora     Yield:  7     Taste:  8

Gardener's Delight:   Yield  2:   Taste:   6 (not sure what went wrong here this year)
