Indeterminate. Cordon but with a sturdy, compact growth habit. The Cyril in question grew his tomato in Essex every year until he passed away in 1984. His sisters carried on the tradition; however, they thought that all was lost in 1993 when their saved seed was not properly dried. A search in 1995 revealed two seeds tucked away at the bottom of their seed tin. An early variety producing red fruits with a tangy flavour, perfect for cooking or salads. Seed Guardian Eluned Paramor has grown them under glass, outdoors and in pots with equal success.
