    I decided this year to have a plateful of just one variety. Summer Cider still my favourite.

    Grushovka.

    They mightn't win on looks but they have exactly the taste I've been looking for - Intensely sweet and sharp and aromatic - if I eat them when they still have a tinge of green. But I'm letting these ones ripen fully for seed saving.

    All of these (plus a few that have already been eaten) from one little 3ft high plant grown in an open topped growhouse, variety Megabyte. The tomatoes are on a 10 inch plate and all the green ones have at least a little red on them. There are 28 tomatoes on this plate, I have eaten at least 4 and there are 4 more on the plant that haven't started turning red yet.
