    Orange Banana - vine
    Large, bright orange, short sausage shaped tomato with a nipple on the end. Heavy crop on a large, vigorous plant. Great tasting tomato, they have a lovely bite to them. I love to eat these fresh but they are a fantastic cooking tomato and make a lovely pasta sauce. I've tried these in pots and I've had blossom end rot, I now grow them in my GH border without any problems.

    Taste 8/10
    Grow again - yes

    Dancing with Smurfs - vine/cherry
    Healthy plants with a blue/black tint to the stems and edges of the leaves. Cherry tomato that has dark blue/black skin that ripens with a deep purple red in the shade. Though the shoulders and sides that are in direct sunlight stay blue black. Heavy crops with a really sweet taste. On a taste test my No1 son choose this over GD and principe B. It's a fun one to grow

    Grow Again - Yes but not as many next year.
    GF, congrats on your great harvest. If I remember correctly, Losetto are an F1 so don't be surprised if what you grow from their seeds is not exactly the same next year. If you want to be sure, buy a fresh packet.

    Just a little update

    The T&M exp 2016 (gardeners would giveaway) is definitely showing some good blight resistant, if you look at the pic below the plant nearest the camera (outdoor girl) has been hit hard by blight whereas the exp 2016 (circled) still looks very healthy.
