    Default What tomato varieties will you be sowing this year?

    I've not yet decided what will be on my tomato grow list this year, have you?

    I'm going to work my way through the seed box and see what I have and maybe order a few to spice it up a bit. I would like a couple of exciting ones to save for the Tom circle as well As growing some old favourites.

    What varieties are you thinking of / or have planned already to grow this year?

    My list so far :
    Gardeners delight
    Latah
    Black Icicle

    #will add more later

    No idea yet but definitely:-
    Gardener's Delight
    Black Icicle,
    Oregon Spring
    Mountain Princess
    Legend

    and the 9 early toms I've already sown.

    My new tomato is Goose Creek (because I like the name and it was on offer) https://www.pennardplants.com/prodde...hp?prod=Sd1341

    There'll be more.

    Definitely growing the trusty Gardeners delight, a stripey type and red pear. Also growing beefsteak this year (can't remember the name of them, but a couple of types) - never tried them before so that will be an experience. Now thinking I need another greenhouse.

    Hmm, I'm adding in buffalo horn - I didn't grow that last year and that's a fabulous tomato.

    Definitely - the ones I've grown before - Rosella, Polish Linguisa, Orange Paruche, Nectar Rose and new to me Irish Gardeners Delight (from Realseeds).
    I'll wait for the seed circle to see what else I try this year...
