Has anyone grown these before? If so when do you sow them.

Thanks

As I understand it Wolf Peach is  a translation of the Latin name for tomato,Solanum Lycopersicon esculentum ,  it was called that in the old days when they were considered inedible or even poisonous.  

When it was discovered that they were edible they were then called Love Apples, as it was thought they were aphrodisiacs, but their Latin name was still S Lycopersicon esculentum. 

Do you have any other clues as to what sort of tomato seeds you have?  Are these the ones you bought on Ebay?

No sorry, I did get them off ebay but it's all written in chiniese

Do you have a greenhouse?

Yes

Then I'd sow tomato seeds indoor on a windowsill late February in a small covered propagator, potting on as necessary and putting into the greenhouse when temperatures in the greenhouse can be relied not to drop much below 18C,
