P'doc - The good expensive stuff, prepared traditionally by experts on small farms in small amounts ... good

Attempts at mass production ... bad

I suggest that you send a sample to Kew 

with details of when and where you found it.  They should be able to identify it for you and it will also be added to the national records.

There used to be a market stall in Norwich that sold Pig's Fry 

Sadly that butcher retired, just after the tripe stall closed ............. but my butcher has some in his freezer

Koralik tomato query

Posted: 31/08/2016 at 09:26

Yes, an old heirloom variety 

Looks like they do well in cooler climates, have good flavour, can cope with a short growing period and are disease resistant.  I'd carry on growing them 

Koralik tomato query

I think Koralik are a heritage Russian variety - some of them do produce varied fruits from time to time.  The flavour's usually pretty stable but the shapes vary.  Probably because they're the product of years and years of 'seed saving' and possible cross-pollination.

If the tomatoes grow and taste ok I wouldn't worry about it. 

House Plant Recommendation

I'd recommend Sansevieria  - mine lives on a sunny windowsill above a radiator and is happy with whatever sunshine and central heating can throw at it.  Probably gets watered once a month.    It's so happy it's bursting out of it's pot.  If you live in Norfolk you're welcome to an off-shoot.

Oh dear!  You're obviously living in the wrong places - it's been idyllic here in Norfolk for ...............ages and ages ........... it started with wall to wall sunshine when we went on holiday to Cornwall in early June and left our neighbour watering tomatoes and new planted trees (she's also a gardener and very reliable thank goodness).  

It did get a bit overcast in July, but still nice and warm ............ and August has been wall to wall sunshine again and dry, dry, dry - I had to top up the pond again yesterday (the frogs croaked their appreciation), I'm having to water the northfacing Shady Bank,  the lawn is the colour of cardboard again and the tomatoes and grapes are ripening just like the pictures in the books and on the seed packets.  

We've not had a meal indoors for weeks ...............
