Black Sea Man

Black Sea Man is an excellent early Russian heirloom with, contrary to the other black varieties we offer, small determinate plants and potato leaf foliage. Plants produce a good yield of large delicious brick red/black tomatoes with dark olive green shoulders when mature. Outstanding tomato for sandwiches due to it’s exceedingly pleasant flavour.

Striped Chocolate

Striped Chocolate is a large fruited variety with vigorous and productive vines. Hard to tell when ripe as fruits remain largely green. However, we had some volunteer plants in the tunnel this year and I picked the fruits when they were still green and they kept really well, slowly ripening indoors, and were much tastier. If you wait until they ripen on the plant, they are overripe and not good tasting. A better experience with this tomato this year!

Striped German

Striped German is a large indeterminate red, orange and yellow tomato. Deliciously sweet and very fleshy beefsteak type. Beautiful sunburst display of colour on bottom  of fruits. Very decorative slices as the marbling of colours inside is gorgeous. Generally a more solid fleshed variety producing few seeds.
