2022 – Deciding which Tomatoes to Grow

At this time of year, I always have a problem deciding which tomato cultivars to grow. When I first started growing tomatoes and recording what I’d grown (a long time ago now it seems), I had plenty of space and an allotment so I grew lots of plants of lots of different cultivars (my record…… Continue reading 2022 – Deciding which Tomatoes to Grow

Tomato – Beams Yellow Pear

Yellow – Pear shaped Cherry tomato on Indeterminate Plants From the 2019 Seed Swap, grown in 2021. A Yellow, pear shaped large cherry tomato, not much like anything we’ve grown before. Its a bit large to use as a salad tomato but its a good flavour and, being a slightly unusual shape, is fun to…… Continue reading Tomato – Beams Yellow Pear

Tomato Lemon Tree – Unusual shaped yellow fruit

A medium sized yellow tomato shaped a bit like a lemon with pointy end. Description We got this from the Lost Gardens of Heligan when we visited in June 2019. Obviously too late to try in 2019 so we grew this for the first time in 2020. Looking around the web it seems a slightly…… Continue reading Tomato Lemon Tree – Unusual shaped yellow fruit

2018 Update

Simple announcement, I’ve now updated the list of tomato cultivars to include those I’ve grown in 2018. That brings to 161 the number listed. 2018 has been a somewhat peculiar year, the tomatoes are early because of the weather. Which is probably a good job because I didn’t do much in the way of thinning…… Continue reading 2018 Update

Tomato Vince

Yellow bell shaped open pollinated tomato on indeterminate plants. Description Vince has yellow, bell-pepper shaped tomatoes with a large cavity and seeds concentrated into a clump in the middle, very similar to Yellow Stuffer. The indeterminate, regular-leafed, plants produce bell-pepper shaped fruit, ideal for stuffing as they are strong walled and nearly empty of seeds.…… Continue reading Tomato Vince

Tomato Goldkrone

Dark Yellow/White Cherry on Indeterminate plants. Also known as Gold Crown. Description Grown for the first time in 2018 with seeds from a seed swap, we were interested to see how this grew and to compare it to other Yellow Cherry tomatoes such as our Oleron Yellow and Nikolayev Yellow Cherry. To be honest it…… Continue reading Tomato Goldkrone

Tomato Gazzi Yellow Egg

Medium Sized Yellow Plum Tomato. Description Grown for the first time in 2018 with seeds from a seed swap, we were interested to see how this grew. It did quite well with a reasonable crop, probably one of the first to ripen in this peculiar year. A early/mid season yellow plum tomato very similar to…… Continue reading Tomato Gazzi Yellow Egg

Tomato Taiko

Small Yellow Plum shaped tomato on an Indeterminate vine. Description Grown for the first time in 2018 with seeds from a seed swap, we were interested to see how this grew. We probably didn’t give it a very good chance as (for some unknown reason) we didn’t bother to thin out the side shoots on…… Continue reading Tomato Taiko

Tomato Yellow Stuffer

Yellow bell shaped open pollinated tomato on indeterminate plants. Description Yellow Stuffer has yellow, bell-pepper shaped tomatoes with a large cavity and few seeds.. The indeterminate, regular-leafed, plants produce a good crop of bell-pepper shaped yellow fruit, ideal for stuffing as they are strong walled and nearly empty of seeds midway through the tomato season.…… Continue reading Tomato Yellow Stuffer
