    • Whilst adding the tomatoes to my list trying to work out what to grow I hit this Wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumato.

        Intetesting! I think they were from NG? She may come back and confirm ( not enough for everyone) I'm sure she said that they were a commercial variety and appeared stable. It's good to have a few new varieties to try

          They are supposed to be a hybrid but appear stable. I thought I had marked the bags. I got them from a seed circle where the person had found them stable as well. Here is my post that shows a photo of them. I did hum and argh as no one spoke up but they came out 2nd fav. last year on flavour so thought they were worth sharing.

              The thing I grow best are very large slugs!

                    Sad to see (according to Wikipedia) that they claim they'll never share the seeds with the average Joe. Assuming that is motivated by maintaining the licence 'revenue streams' it seems an awful shame.

                    Oh well will enjoy growing my own

                    • Which variety are people most excited about having to grow this year from the parcel?

                      Urbikany and Kumato for me. Seen Urbikany for years, but never got around to getting some seeds and growing them!

                        Are you referring to the seeds marked Urbans Delight?

                        This is the first I've heard of them, but I'm assuming its a self selected type of gardeners delight with longer trusses?

                            Sorry! I packed up Urbans "mega truss gardeners delight" seeds! They were renamed so everyone would know that that's where they came from!

                              Thanks. They look great. They just moved up my list of priorities.
