Tomato – Gigantomo

A Large Red Beefsteak F1 Hybrid tomato on Indeterminate plants.

Description

This F1 Hybrid Beefsteak tomato is claimed to produce large fruit (up to 1kg), much larger than anything we’ve managed to grow (but nowhere near the record size) and yet be tasty. Other than its sheer size I’m not sure that anything in particular recommends this tomato, the web seems to suggest that the plants will only produce around 10 fruit and (I assume) they will be very late to ripen so, in a cold greenhouse, will be liable to all the problems at the end of the season.

Its one of those cultivars that we will grow when there’s space but compare to the plethora of red beefsteak cultivars like Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, etc..

When we grow it, we’ll save seeds as normal.
