Tomato: Ailsa Craig

The Ailsa Craig tomato is famed for its flavour, with just the right balance of sweetness and acidity combined. This is the tomato with the taste that many measure other varieties against. 

Bright red, medium-sized, juicy fruits.

The indeterminate (cordon) plants can be grown undercover or outside in favoured spots and give early crops. Bred in Scotland in the early 1900s, this variety also does well in Wales.

Grown by Sue Stickland and Cultivate trainee Michele in Newtown, Mid Wales!

Approx 40 seeds per packet. 

Tomato: Darby Striped
