I've been asked to try out some tomato varieties by Baia Nicchia, a small seed company from near San Francisco. They're reputed to be cool tolerant, so I guess they wanted someone in a cool climate like the UK to try them out.
The varieties are called Spain (pictured left, and named after the Spanish flag) - "a striking sausage-shaped tomato with yellow stripes over red" and Maglia Rosa - "a beautiful egg-shaped tomato decorated with a mottled pink skin".
The plan is that I grow them and report back on how they perform, which I'll endeavour to do. I'll also try to save some seed which I'll offer to Horticultural readers when the time comes.
I love growing new and interesting tomatoes, so it'll be great to try these out. I also have my eye on some yellow cherry tomatoes called Galina from Siberia listed on the Real Seed Company's tomatoes page, and the Marmande tomato as raved about by Jane Grigson in her classic Vegetable recipe book.
