Suttons and Rob Smith launch heritage veg and cut flower seed ranges

Suttons/Dobies of Devon are launching tomatoes named 'Red Currant' and 'Yellow Currant' as part of a Heritage Vegetable Range being launched this September.

Big Allotment Challenge winner Rob Smith, who has helped pick the range, said: "This variety produces tiny fruits, hence the name. It's a different species from your common garden tomato and its hardly changed since it was found growing wild on a Peruvian beach in 1707.

"The plants are very disease resistant, and can tolerate cooler temperatures. Each tiny tomato is crisp, and has a really intense, sweet/tart flavour. Good in salads, or straight from the plant. These tomatoes will reward you with fruit every day."

Also in the range is Radish 'Long Scarlet' and Onion 'Borretana'.

Smith has also worked with Suttons/Dobies on a range of cut flower seeds including Rudbeckia 'Green Wizard' and Aquilegia Nora Barlow Mix. Suttons is also launching the FRUIT ME range of small trees adapted to grow in different container sizes, as well as a new equipment catalogue.
