New Tomato Varieties - D.T.Brown

A little bit about why each one ended up on my order form, and my to grow list for 2021 




New! 
 Tomato Bloody Butcher (Medium) - Heritage variety D.T.Brown apologise for the name, but explain that it's really strong, 'red-blooded' tomato taste makes up for it. The red skinned, medium sized fruits have dark red flesh. Grow outdoors or indoors. Indeterminate.


New! 
 Tomato Losetto F1 - Resistance to blight is one of the major benefits of this cascading 'bush' tomato, which is a good choice for outdoor containers. The cherry-sized fruits are really tasty and produced in abundance on plants which remain healthy through the summer. It can also be grown direct in the garden. Determinate.



New! 
 Tomato Mountain Magic - This is without doubt the most blight resistant tomato D.T.Brown have ever seen. The only variety to come through their blight trial totally unscathed, it is resistant to early and late blight as well as cracking, verticillium and fusarium wilt. Some blight resistant varieties can be watery and lacking flavour, however these fruits are sweet and succulent with a high sugar content and real tomato zing. Indeterminate.



New! 
 Tomato Veranda Red - An exciting dwarf variety which is perfect for patio pots and containers. Veranda Red combines all the best traits of a compact outdoor type with all the sweetness of a greenhouse cherry tomato. The yield certainly matches the flavour with each plant producing up to 75 fruits. Plants show good resistance to Verticillium, Fusarium and some resistance to Late Blight. What more could one ask for!



New! 
 Tomato White Cherry - White to light lemon medium large cherry fruits each weighing approx.. 25g. They have a delicious sweet, slightly smoky flavour and make a tantalising addition to salads or even eaten as snacks.
