A cherry sized pointed plum tomato on indeterminate plants.
Britains Breakfast is a very productive cherry plum tomato. Its lemon shaped fruit is produced on large spreading trusses of between 30 and 70 fruit. The number of fruit on a truss means that you should possibly restrict the plant to only a few trusses otherwise the number of fruit on each truss and size will be affected.
The fruit are extremely tasty and its a superb tomato for salads and snacking as well cooking for all sorts of uses as (despite their size) they peel relatively easily and make a rich sauce.
We grew these in 2013 & 2014 with reasonable success, not huge crops by weight but a large number of fruit. We will grow them again.
The fruit does not split easily when ripe.
We grew these again in 2019 (as I’ve said everywhere else a “funny” year) and unlike most of the varieties, it looks as though we are going to get a better crop than other years. However, if you look at the picture, you’ll see there’s some Blossom End Rot.
