Indeterminate. Cordon. This Australian heirloom is a strong grower, producing long trusses of scarlet fruits the size of a large cherry. Disease resistant, hardy, and prolific. Delicious when cooked, but equally good as a salad or sandwich tomato. Performs well indoors or out. This variety produces flowers with stigma that protrude from the anther cone, so if seed saving it will require isolating from other varieties of this type.
Determinate. Bush. Commercially available until the 1980s, this very early variety produces sprawling, but compact, plants perfect for containers or hanging baskets. Yields an abundance of attractive, small, oval, pinkish-red fruit with a fabulous sweet flavour.
Indeterminate. Cordon. Originally brought from Poland after WWII by our donor's neighbour, Wladeck Neitzgoda, and named after him. This prolific variety can be grown outdoors or under glass. The heavy trusses require ingenuity to support. Produces large beefsteak-type fruits with fantastic flavour and aroma. Great for slicing in salads, but also cooks well and makes delicious soup. If seed saving isolate from other tomatoes that have flowers with protruding stigma.
Indeterminate. Cordon. Produces hardy, vigorous, pest and disease free vines laden with small, yellow, pear-shaped fruit. Burpee's catalogue describe this USA heirloom as their “best tasting yellow mini tomato, sweet and mild.” Let us know what you think.
Originally from Finland, these were types of turnip sown after burning the land. ‘Kaski’ means an area cleared by fire, and ‘nauris’ means turnip. This turnip goes back several hundred years to the time when land was managed this way. Flattened disc-like in shape and purple skinned with, occasionally, a yellow underside.
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.
