  • I can definitely recommend you don't try indigo rose, I grew them this year and was utterly unimpressed.

    There's an older topic from earlier this year that has recommendations for tomatoes. I'm on mobile device so can't dig it up for you, but some searching should find it.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • @Pete.8 those are useful topics and there was another topic in addition to those 2. I remember it, because I asked you where you got Rosa de Berne seeds from . You suggested Simpson's, I ordered last month and have received them ready for next year, so thank you for that suggestion!

    I tried an experiment this year.
    By October I pulled the plants, but one Rose de Berne still had some sizeable fruits that were still very green.
    I left them on the defoliated plant until there was a frost a few weeks ago.
    I picked the fruits and left them on a grid above my heated floor - and they're looking rather good.
    I'm planning on a Greek salad this evening so hope they taste as good as they look!
    I've never had a home-grown tomato in December before!

    Sunchocola F1 performed really well for me as a black 'cherry' type.  From the same family as Sungold F1, so plenty of sweetness and flavour.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
