A video on new varieties coming soon

I came across this video from Burpee Europe the other day that I found interesting so wanted to share. A peek at what’s new and what’s coming down the line for next year.

Honeycomb Tomatoes

Seeds and Plant Breeding

Burpee Europe carry out plant breeding research and development of new varieties of vegetables and flowers for use by home gardeners around the world. They supply seed merchants like Suttons rather than direct to the public.

Their main effort of the last few years has been in tomatoes. A number of new varieties from the breeding programme have been released for sale recently Incidentally, the tomato Honeycomb mentioned in the video is now available from Suttons.

I’ll be giving them a try next year as Suttons tell me

These gorgeous cherry tomatoes came top in our taste tests, thanks to their sweet, juicy flavour which has undertones of honey. You’ll see less fruit splitting than Sungold, with around 150-200 cherry tomatoes on every plant.

    A very exciting glimpse of new varieties. It would be lovely if they could produce a list we could refer to later. Could you find out any details of the tomato growing frame he mentioned and how to use them?
    Thank you.

    Excellent coverage of new lines, especially tomatoes. Would prefer a better quality of background music.
