been growing gardeners delight toms for years now,fancy a change to a larger variety,any tips for a red sweet taster.



I haven,t grown tomatoes for years, but when I did I used to grow an old variety called " moneymaker ", not too big, but lovely tasting, and nice even ripening.

I have exactly the same situation, Miner. I have asked around and been told that "Principe Borghese" should fit the bill, so that's what will be planted this year, along with Ferline.

thanks for your comments,moneymaker probably easy to get as plants.principe borghese and ferline i have never heard of or seen as plants at garden centres but will look and try if i can get and grow.thanks again.

Ferline is an F1 seed and was recommended by someone on this site, and is available from Thompson and Morgan, Principe Borghese is an Italian tomato - you can get the seed in England, I'm sure - try googling it, Miner. Message received loud and clear by the way.
