New twists on old garden favourites
We trialed hundreds of heirlooms for key traits like colour, flavour, quality, yield. Our favourites were selected…crossed…tested and evaluated. The result: Heirloom Marriage hybrid tomatoes, with much higher yields and earlier maturity than their parents, plus all of the great flavour and less fruit blemishes.
