Vegetable - Tomato - Peppermint
This is a lovely heirloom from the mountains around Crab Orchard, Tennessee, producing large, meaty 1lb tomatoes. The tomatos are beautifully striped, red and orange, with low acid, sweet and mild flavour, perfect for eating like fruit. This good yielding variety is both attractive and delicious.
Sow from February onwards in pots. Will need heat to germinate. Plant out in greenhouse from May onwards or outdoors after hardening off in June. Do not allow the plants to get too cold as they will develop a purple tint and growth will slow down.
