An old time favourite that has been popular for many years due to its excellent productivity and wonderful taste. Vigorous vines produce 250-500gm fruit, slightly ribbed, bright-red tomatoes that have spectacularly delicious, sweet flavours. This tomato's excellent taste and meaty flesh make it an ideal tomato for eating fresh or cooking. Ideal for sandwiches and great for preserving or drying.

Adaptable to most soils but produces the best fruit in a deep free-draining soil with consistent moisture in a sunny position. Protect from strong winds, support with stakes when required.
