Yes it is and a F1 hybrid from DT.Brown seeds £2.99 for 5 seeds.Had 2 packets they all germinated so that's enough for what i want.
Your harvest looks amazing. :)
We usually get wild plums for making jam but the trees have all been cut back.

Worth it to get a blight free crop (y) Not had the blight here yet, despite a few warnings, most of the toms are in the greenhouse so one spraying of Bordeaux mixture seems to have done it.

San Marzano (Heinz) tomatoes are coming on now :)

Most of mine are in the conservatory so haven't had any contact with the fungus and the ones outside seem to be ok but very slow to fruit.:) But it's worth the money, I signed up for emails from them and they do offers like free p&p weekends and offers on seeds and plants if you wait and don't order for a while. I usually wait until sometime in the new year to order.

First of the San Marzano tomatoes, these and Roma tomatoes are the only ones that can be used for a True Neapolitan Pizza. :)

@zigs are you using twine or something to help the tomatos up what looks like bamboo poles?
Yep :) Jute string to tie them on, the bamboo is homegrown by Tetters.

When they get to the top i'm tying them across the greenhouse rafters.
