Home-grown tomatoes always taste so much better than shop-bought ones and you'll find a great range of tomato seeds in our range. They're relatively easy to grow and can be started off in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill and planted out when they're well grown and there is no more risk of frost. Try the supersweet Sungold - with non-stop cropping and juicy, bite-sized, orange fruits, you'll love them!For growing tips take a look at our How to grow tomatoes guide.
Tomato 'Akron' F1 Hybrid - RHS endorsed vegetable seeds
Solanum lycopersicum L.This heavy weight tomato has performed superbly in RHS Wisley growing trials, coming out tops against 31 other varieties. We were amazed at the heavy crops at the end of the trial period. Each plant produced an average of 69 fruits under greenhouse conditions, comparable in size to the fruits of Money maker - each weighing an average 109g (3¾ oz). But the plants didn't stop there! The trials officially ended in September, but the Tomato Akron plants just kept on cropping in the warmth of the Wisley polytunnel well into late autumn. For the longest cropping season from your greenhouse tomatoes look no further than Akron F1, you'll be as surprised as we were by these vigorous healthy tomato plants. The season will be shorter, but this cordon variety will also crop well out in the garden in a sunny sheltered spot. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").
