Amateur is an 'old favourite' was once popular for field growing under cloches producing good results.

A bush tomato that Mr Jeremy Shirley first grew in the mid 1950's and still enjoys to this day.

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. Sometimes you can find a straw mulch and help growth.

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 light and air in can prove beneficial.
  • This variety performs well both outside and under protection.
  • If slugs are found to be a problem, use our BioFriend Slug Banish.
