Order received safely today. Wonderful quality Jostaberry - I have previously purchased twice from Ken Muir and they have been miserable things which died immediately. Thankyou. The packaging contributed to my compost heap I have had great success with the climbing peas and look forward to sowing these next year. I recommend you to all my gardening friends Best wishes

Supplied as a packet of approximately 15 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
There's no way of describing this variety apart from ugly; the purple-blue fruits are deeply ribbed and somewhat squat in appearance - and more often than not the shape is not symmetrical. Typical of tomatoes pictured in 16th Century Herbal books, this variety of tomato is a great rarity grown for public exhibition in the Thomas Jefferson's Horticultural Gardens at Monticello in the USA and exclusive to us in the UK.
But that horrible appearance hides a real treasure, a really flavoursome tomato with a very strong tomato favour and slight sharp finish. Not the best variety for eating as a salad tomato, it really comes into its own when used in salsas or cooked.
