Last year, I was given a precious punnet of black tomatoes grown by a dear gardener, Janet. They tasted fantastic, not something one can often say about black tomatoes. And did you EVER see any as black as these patent leather beauties. Did I eat them all? Did I heck!! I lovingly collected seed and to my delight have raised a good batch of seedlings this year. Originally from America I wonder how they will fare out in our variable English summer? I am going to trial some in the greenhouse and some out in my arid allotment. Here’s to tomatoes as shiny as new shoes!
