Just a quick note to say how easy, informative and in general, a pleasure, your website was to use this morning. Also, it is so refreshing to read your comments about "Organic" produce. I was amazed to read something so sensible, in all honesty. Working in the farming industry, food labelling is one of my bugbears and your comments about so called Organic food coming to the UK from abroad hit the nail on the head!

Supplied as a packet of approximately 10 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
Despite its name, we can sadly see no link to any of our ancestors being involved in the breeding of this excellent greenhouse tomato variety.
'Shirley' always produces a heavy crop of uniform fruits that are everything a tomato should be - good colour, meaty, juicy and very flavoursome! No wonder why this is now regarded the UK amateurs favourite greenhouse variety (it will do just as well in a polytunnel or similar).
Very early into cropping, it just seems to go on and on. Very reliable and with good disease resistance too.
