ROB SAYS - “Solanum pimpernelifolium produces tiny fruits, hence the name. It’s a different species from your common garden tomato and its hardly changed since it was found growing wild on a Peruvian beach in 1707. The plants are very disease resistant, and can tolerate cooler temperatures. Each tiny tomato is crisp, and has a really intense, sweet/tart flavour. Good in salads, or straight from the plant. These indeterminate-type tomatoes will reward you with fruit every day. Try drying some to make your own tomato currants or toss with mozzarella, basil and cous cous for a funky summer salad, perfect for adults and kids alike.
Grow them as you would any cordon tomato and pinch out the side shoots (you can leave a few side shoots if you forget). They may be confused as they were found growing on a beach on the floor, but that's because they were wild. To get the best from the plants when they are trained up a cane, they will grow to around 1.5-2m in a greenhouse." Pack contains 6 plants (3 of each variety) and available in two sizes - 6 Super Plug Plants or 6 Potted Plants:
Red Currant - Very tiny, very tasty tomatoes. High yielding with large trusses. Round, bright red fruits with firm juicy texture.
Yellow Currant - Petite round yellow fruits. Abundance of fruit on large trusses. Perfect for salads.
Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.
Part of the Grafted Range - "I've decided to graft an exclusive range of fantastic vegetables. Not only are they great for the allotment, but for the garden and containers as well! Grafting means they'll produce up to 75% more produce and they're more resistant to disease. Try them in the ground or in containers ont he patio for veg all summer long."
