Thank for your prompt responses, Pete8 & Pansyface: I bought 3" potted seedling/ 8" plants from Wyevale Garden Centre in Carmarthen. *The plantlets were a trifle 'leggy' (half-price reduced), but I potted them on immediately - so they romped away into tallish, healthy-looking plants before going into deep earth beds in my greenhouse. The fruits are 'clean' but as I was concerned about blight, I have only watered into sunken 4 pint milk containers upended (minus bottoms!). *Tasting notes will follow as I've yet to have any 'samples' deemed ripe enough!
BTW: I bought "Artisan Pink" plants at the same time - they have yet to produce any ripened fruits...??
**Have now read the reviews in the link offered, Pansyface: seems folk either love 'em or can't abide!! Await tasting with added interest...!!
