Can anyone out there help. I have been growing tomatoes for over 35 years and never experienced them being so slow to ripen. Given the fabulous weather we've been having ripening didn't ought to be a problem. I have just read an article about this problem in the letters of a newspaper. The theory is that the seeds come as far away as New Zealand and California, which are affected by time and seasonal differences. the other thought is that they are freeze dried and packed in foil sachets which are packed and refrigerated far too soon before they have had time to mature.
Has anyone else any thoughts on this, I would be pleased to hear. Thanks
