Thanks for the reply!! I hope that having taken cuttings I should have enough time to have a second crop of minibel tomatoes ripened by the end of summer (weather dependant!)
I am suprised by how few people seem to have grown this variety Hardly anyone I speak to have heard of them. All rather strange!
They require no staking, take very little room and are pretty disease resistant (I have no problems at all with them so far). They have produced a lot of tomatoes that are ripening well and the actual size is very good for a cherry- about 1 and half inches or so.
As an heirloom variety I would have thought more people would have tried it! Especially as it takes so little room it is an ideal size for container/patio growing or even as a companion plant at the ends of the salad beds. I presume city/balcony growers would love this type as well...
Come on all you fellow gardeners- I can't have been the only one to grow them....Anyone??
