Tomato – Crimson Blush

Red, Blight Resistant, Small Beefsteak F1 tomato on Indeterminate Plants

Description

One of the family of blight resistant tomatoes which include Crimson Crush. Our experience growing Crimson Crush at the allotment was that it wasn’t particularly resistant to blight. However growing them outdoors at home where we’re further away from sources of blight was that it grows quite well both outdoors and in the greenhouse. We’ll try this one and see how it compares to similar beefsteaks such as Mortgage Lifter and Pink Brandywine. We’ll collect the seeds and see how the subsequent generations fare.

Photographs will be added as we go.
