Top Toms for 2015

  

Results of the tomato trials



Interest for Patio Vegetables, in particular Tomatoes & Peppers continues to be strong.

At this last season’s Ball Colegrave Summer Open Days, visitors were given the opportunity to taste many of our most Cherry Tomato varieties to find their own favourite.

Top Tomato this year was won this year by ‘Sweet Aperitif’. The high yielding small fruits of this delicious tomato variety have an exceptional flavour. The high levels of sugar (brix value of 10.5) and acid give a particularly sweet taste with a refreshing tang.




Please see the table below for the full tasting 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 58 varieties of Tomatoes, 26 Hot Peppers and 20 Sweet peppers 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.
