Tomato 'Sweet Aperitif'
Solanum lycopersicum L.
With its multi branching habit, this red skinned cherry tomato produces excellent yields of delicious, bite sized fruits. Each fruit weighs approximately 12g and when grown in the greenhouse over a long period, up to 500 thin-skinned, shiny red cherry fruits are produced per plant - that's about 6kg (13 lbs)! Tomato 'Sweet Aperitif' has a high sugar content and just the right amount of acidity which combine beautifully for a sweet, but refreshing flavour. This cordon variety can be grown in the greenhouse, or in a sheltered, sunny spot outdoors. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Tomato 'Mountain Magic'
Solanum lycopersicum L.
For blight-free tomato growing this season look no further than Mountain Magic F1. This top-performing cordon-trained variety is ideal for sunny veg patches and borders, as well as grow bags and patio containers. Combining the rich flavour of heritage varieties with modern F1 hybrid disease resistance, this tasty tom has everything going for it!
Mountain Magic F1 is truly all-purpose - eat it from the vine, slice for salads and sandwiches, or use as a cooker or sauce base.
Not only does it have good resistance to early blight, it carries the late blight-busting Ph-2 and Ph-3 genes, giving it full protection against all current British strains including Pink6 and Blue13, the most virulent to hit UK crops. It also has in built genetic resistance to both verticillium and fusarium wilt and cracking.
To top it off you will be hard pushed to find better flavour from such a disease resistant variety. Mountain Magic F1 takes on a high sugar level from its grape tomato parentage. The smooth, uniform, evenly-coloured fruits, each weighing around 56g, have consistently been rated high in flavour compared to heritage varieties such as Brandywine. Height: 130cm (52"). Spread: 120cm (47")More info
