Hi all, last year I had a very successful first year growing glasshouse based tomatoes but this year I would like to grow great tasting tomatoes which are maybe harder to buy in shops. Anyone have any suggestions of 'different' varieties which have fantastic taste but never became popular due to their non martekable shape etc (if you know what I mean)? Have a 10x6 glasshouse so can fit several different varieties. Also where can I buy this seeds or plants? Obviously getting standard tomatoes is easy. Live in County Down is probably will have to buy online...

I seem to remember reading reports on unusual tomatoes in the RHS magazine The Garden. Or try the Soil Association website. I'm sure Seedsavers in Clare would have useful info, too.

I usually grow Tomatoes from seed, but have had late/poor crops in recent years. So this year I bought 2 lots of plants from DT Browns in England.

Both were much better than plants from seed (in my greenhouse anyway) But one 'Sakura' was brilliant! Loads of small(ish), very sweet tomatoes on very healthy plants.

I am ordering them again this year!
