I have never heard of those before.

I've eaten black tomatoes. They were just like red, the colour put me off though, as did purple carrots. My mum once told me that you don't eat with your eyes. Rolling Eyes

Black Russian I believe, dodger.

Done nothing this year. May buy a couple of plants and stick them in, but there's been bigger priorities the last 12 months.

what's the secrets owddave, I've only been gardning for about 3/4 seasons and although I've grown some good tasting tomatoes, I don't seem to get bumper crops,
what do you plant them in, soil,compost or other,what feed do you use and how often, how should you water them, and any other info will be welcome

the ones in my pots now are all moneymakers from seed,

thanks,

Tomorite is the best out of a bottle. Home made comfrey feed is good too. Father in law always got good crops growing from grow bag, whereas I got less from growing in pots but using the same compost (Evergreen peat based I think it's called).

I have always grown in pots,don't start to feed until the first little Tomatoes start to form,Tomorite is about the best,dont forget to leave your greenhouse door open to allow the pollen to circulate,i always tar the canes daily just to be on the safe side.
