A bush tomato that Jeremy Shirley first grew in the mid 1950s, this 'old favourite' was once popular for field-growing under cloches.

Reliable and heavy cropping, this is a variety to be trusted outside and inside alike. The habit is fairly compact, growing to around 3 feet (90 cm) tall.

Mid-sized bright red fruits have good thick flesh and an excellent flavour.

  • This is a determinate variety and best grown as a bush.
  • There is no need to side-shoot though thinning excessive growth to allow in light and air can prove beneficial.
  • This variety performs well both outside and under protection.
