Top Toms for 2013


Latest news from our Open Days

Interest in Patio Vegetables and in particular Tomatoes, Peppers and Strawberries is on the increase.

At this year’s Ball Colegrave Summer Open Days, visitors were given the opportunity to taste 25 of our most popular Tomato varieties to find their favourite.

Harvest started late with the poor light levels and cold temperatures. However by the 3rd week of open days, production was in full swing and voting could begin. Please see below for the table of results:

Trade information: Ball Colegrave offer an extensive range of over 400 carefully selected Vegetable, Fruit and Herb varieties as seed and plug plants. With 65 varieties of Tomatoes, 19 Hot Peppers, 22 Sweet peppers and 13 Strawberries in the range, all supported with a high impact 4” colour label, there is plenty of choice for our customers to enjoy the growing interest in tasty, home grown fruit and vegetables.
