Toby says: “As well as its ability to shrug off even the worst blight, Crimson Crush will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large, round tomatoes (each weighing up to 200g). Bred for outdoor growing, it’s the tomato that everyone should be planting this year!” This is not just a blight resistant tomato it is a blight beating tomato. Never be disappointed with your tomato crop when blight strikes again. Ideal for the home or the allotment. Harvest July-October.

I LOVE these tomatoes! I start them in the poly tunnel in pots and in early May the are rearing to go outside. They make a very strong rootstock and so I allow 3-4 main leaders to grow. I pinch out all other side shoots and tie in the kept ones to a STRONG stake 1.20m high with plenty in the ground because they will crop heavily 10-20lbs easily per plant. Some of the first fruits on a tress rival a beefsteak in size and all have excellent flavour. They are blight resistant, I grow outside on an allotment and even when others are mouldering around me, my boys keep going! 4th year of growing fantastic.

I planted 12 of these in my back garden last summer. The plants were vigorous and produced a lot of fruit. Many of my friends complained that they had to pull up their tomato plants (not Crimson Crush) due to blight, but mine were untouched by blight and kept producing until early November. The fruit were large and tasty and I even bottled them and have been using them for pasta sauces all winter! I definitely recommend this variety.

Incredible tomatoes. Best I have ever grown. I had 54 tomato plants on my allotment. 12 were Crimson Crush the rest had blight. All kinds of varieties. All in the recycle bin now. Blight was swift and destroyed every type of tomato accept for Crimson Crush. That's all I'm growing from now on.

Like others, I took advantage of the free offer, and also was frustrated by the bad weather in planting outside, so they went into a border in my unheated polytunnel in a bed that had grown tomatoes last year. I planted one Moneymaker alongside them as a comparison. The moneymaker never got a chance! the Crimson Crush had flowers on them when they arrived and were still flowering in December!! The last tomatoes were picked late November. The taste was really good throughout. Quantity was so good that we were giving surplus away. The skins were a little tough, but did not deter from their eating and there was a very large amount of flesh inside. They were so badly treated that I didn't think they would survive at all - they did arrive a little dry and I forgot to water them twice, but even after wilting in the heat, they continued producing masses of fruit and none of the fruit split, unlike the Moneymaker! I'm just about to order some seed for myself and some friends for this year.

Took delivery of 3 well-grown Crimson Crush plants in May, planted out on allotment in a section I've not used for toms etc in 10yrs+. V impressed with flavour - juicy & with a lovely sweet/tart balance. It's good as a salad tom, totally excellent fried, roasted etc). Also v impressed with yield: 2015 was not a great year for toms but these produced 7lb+ each. Re blight resistance: Crimson Crush were definitely the most resistant toms I've grown: still standing until this week but yes, I have had to cut them down as all three plants were showing signs of blight (leaves & stems & also just starting on the fruit). So it's a highly blight resistant variety but not blight-proof (too much to hope for, really!) It's definitely one I want to grow again: ordering seeds today.
