    Cadalot grows lots of varieties and he really rates Outdoor Girl as an early tom. I gave them a go but they didn't do too well for me. Possibly too hot, but I'd trust Cadalot's judgement for the UK.

    Love the sweet taste of Sungold and the way they grow well in or outside - Do not like the way they perform in a hanging basket (got the labels mixed up with Tumbler!).

    Also, love the taste of Tumbler - but they do not grow tall enough in the ground.

    Grimley
    I know its late but I do recommend Glacier as an outdoor variety
    I tried it indoors grew pretty well but flavour so so
    1 plant I had extra got put out and it was so productive for a small plant
    I think its supposed to be a cherry but its between cherry and slicer to me
    that outdoor plant had such a good flavour

    My current favourite plant is Marmande due to its flavour

    Sincerely
    Steve

    Also, Lisa grew them in Spain where the climate is ever so slightly different to the UK!!

    (nah, he knows his onions... )


    Outdoor Girl didn't float my boat - but its all subjective I suppose. Ignore me anyway - I've only got about 3 varieties on the go this year...
