Pepolino F1

Each season I grow as many different varieties as space will allow and this year I'm growing a new variety called Pepolino F1.

The plant is a bush variety that grows well in a container and its tomatoes are elongated and similar to a plumb shape.

The taste is excellent and is a very good balance of both sugar and acid which gives it a traditional tomato flavour. However, the fruit are very small - about half the size of an average cherry tomato and although the plants produce lots of these little toms, I don't think I shall grow them next season.

There are many varieties to try, so a tomato has to be pretty special to grow it every year.
