Emerald CherrySWEET AND RIPE WHEN GREEN!
This is a most unusual cherry tomato that ripens to emerald green instead of red (!) - making lots of fruit about 1 inch across.
They are sweet - they really are perfectly ripe with a proper ripe-tomato taste while still green, and are very pretty sliced.
Order ToEm - 24 seed £1.69
This is a new variety we are intoducing for you to try in 2013. A very sweet cherry tomato, with lots of purple-brown fruit about 1 inch across. You should get about 6 to 8 fruit per truss, and they keep well after picking.
Selected for good flavour. Please let us know what you think of it!
Order ToCH - 24 seed £1.89
This new addition to the catalogue is possibly the best tasting and best performing ‘white’ strain of tomato that is available - this one is sweet & fruity, with a real tomato flavor.
The fruits ripen to a very pale yellow, almost pure white. The amount of exposure to the sun effects the amount of yellow. If there is good leaf cover, then you can get almost snow white fruits.
New trial variety.. Please let us know what you think of it!

Tangerine(NEW for 2013)
This is a fantastic new tomato we're really pleased to be able to offer. It was actually found by Ben in his salad while on holiday with friends in the Ariege in France, and it was so good he knew straight away that we had to add it to the catalogue. It turned out that it had been grown by a neighbour who we also knew, and so we got together and arranged to have some of her polytunnel devoted to seed production for us.
It is a brilliant orange, with a great balance of sweet and acid, and is quite large for a cherry tomato - about one and a half inches across. The vines grow to a decent height and produce large numbers of fruit over a really long season.
This variety has been selected over the years by Jen Boncyk, a market gardener high in the mountains, so it is used to cold nights and short seasons. The seed we have here has been grown for us by Jen herself. Enjoy!
Tasty orange large-cherry tomato, good long fruiting season.

Stupice EARLY VINE
This fantastic 1954 variety from Eastern Europe is the earliest of all our vine tomatoes.
We tried lots of new varieties in 2010 and this one was noticeably earlier than the others; we got a great crop simply in large pots on our patio, despite the rainy summer.
The plants are vigorous and produce red fruit with an excellent flavour. Ideal for outdoors, but also good in a greenhouse for early crops.
Larger than a cherry tomato, but not as big as a beefsteak type, the fruit are about two inches across.
Fast-fruiting variety for shorter summers.
Order ToST - 25 seed £1.94
Hi and thank you so much for the Stupice tomato seeds. In one of the grayest, wettest summers on record when our greenhouse flooded at least four times, to our amazement and envy of our neighbours the Stupice plants grew, thrived and produced pound after pound of beautiful red tomatoes. I have just picked the very last of them and saved seed ready for next year. Many thanks for all your brilliant seeds and super newsletter. - Janet
We have the genuine Gardeners Delight variety, which is known so well there's hardly a need to describe it. After all these years, it is one of the most reliable of the cherry tomatoes in the UK. This is standard seed direct from the offical registered maintainer of the variety.
Much-loved red cherry.
