Sunray Gold

Tomato Sunray Gold

Indeterminate. Cordon. Thought to date back to before 1950, the seeds came to us in a packet from White Rose Seeds, Unionville, Ontario, Canada. Vigorous plants need little space to produce a large crop, on trusses so heavy that they may require some support. The huge, golden-yellow, round, slightly ribbed fruits can weigh more than 500g each and are perfect fresh for slicing, in salads and also tasty when cooked.

Texas Wild

Tomato Texas Wild truss

Determinate. Bush. This variety was first cultivated in the 1900s, allegedly from a patch of wild tomatoes growing in southern Texas, USA. Produces sprawling bushes that appear to crop better if kept in pots rather than grown in the ground, where they tend to produce foliage at the expense of fruits. The abundant crop of small, red, sweet-flavoured fruits is perfect in salads, or just eaten fresh. Grows well outdoors or under glass.

Mr Hong's

Vietnamese Mustard Mr Hong's

Vietnamese mustard can be stir-fried or mixed with other salad leaves. Worth growing for its flavour. It is sweet with a peppery kick, but not quite as ferocious as winter mustards. Before the flowers open the buds form tiny, broccoli-like, lime green florets, which are great for adding flavour and texture to salads.
