Physalis ixocarpa Grande Rio Verde

JS3938
!

New for 2019!

Giant Green Tomatillo  10 seeds

Physalis ixocarpa or Tomatillo, a native of Mexico, is a relative of the tomato, eggplant and pepper. As a traditional part of Mexican cooking, tomatillos are found in stews, moles and salsas. They are seldom used whole, and are often pureed. Its texture is firmer than a tomato and it tastes like a tangy lemon. Grande Rio Verde has, like Cisineros, some of the largest apple green fruit between 2" and 3" weighing 3 to 4oz each. Growing tomatillos is like growing tomatoes, only easier. The tomatillos grow inside a papery husk. The husk helps to protect the fruit should a light frost occur. When the fruit has grown to nearly fill its husk, it’s ready to harvest. Make sure they’re picked before the fruit turns yellow, otherwise the fruit’s tangy flavour will be lost.

Radish Watermelon

!

New for 2019!

Vining Medium Blue Tomato  10 seeds

An unusual vining tomato for growing under glass or outside in a sheltered location that produces bright blue unripe tomatoes that ripen to a deep purple mahogany colour but with a yellow base - hence the name! The taste is ok and quite an unusual novelty and a great talking point with neighbours!

Tomato F1 Orange Parouche

JS3916
!

New for 2019!

Indoor Vining Tomato 8 seeds

Without a doubt one of the finest orange cherry tomatos available. While most cherry-sized tomatoes tend to have thick skin (to protect against cracking) and not a lot of flavour, Orange Paruche, resistant to fusarium and tobacco mosaic virus has a thin skin and outdoes itself with an unforgettably sugary, true-tomato tang you'll find irresistible! Measuring 9 on the Brix sweetness scale, the 1" fruits rival beefsteaks for sugar content. We believe this is the same variety sold as Orange rhapsody in some supermarkets. A fabulous new introduction.

Tomato Indigo Rose

JS3925
!

New for 2019!

Vining Cherry Blue/Black Tomato  10 seeds

Tomato Indigo Rose is one of the darkest tomato's bred so far, exceptionally high in anthocyanins that are powerful antioxidants.  The 2" fruits have a dark purple to black skin on top when exposed to direct sunlight and the bottom of the fruit ripens to a dark red. Bred at Oregon State University it has a good flavour and is a heavy yielder.
