    Default ILDI Tomato F1?

    Well, I've just received my March issue of GYO Mag and it comes with 10 packs of seed....one of which is RHS Tomato Ildi F1!
    Well you learn something everyday - I honestly thought that one wasn't!

    I noticed that too - and dug out an old packet of Ildi which is not "F1".
    Looks like they're taking us for a ride again.

    I'm so annoyed! Especially as it has RHS blazoned across the front.....but I would really like to know for sure before I go complaining!

    RHS seem to be the only ones selling it as an F1.

    Dr Carolyn Male says T&M introduced it in 2002 - Anyone Know Country of Origin for Ildi? - TomatovilleŽ Gardening Forums - so presumably they would know for certain.

    Thanks Tommytoes, I'll do a little research.

    I've grown Ildi a number of times (originally from Nicky's Seeds) and I've not seen them classified as F1 anywhere. I've saved my own seed and its run true.
