Winning title for Heritage Seed Library tomato

Cape Teaser

Congratulations to James Pollard winner of our Heritage Seed Library (HSL) competition to name our latest variety of Heritage tomato with the title "Cape Teaser".

When the tomato seeds were sent was sent in by a member from Taunton they was nameless, so it was given the working name ‘Orange’. This year the variety underwent trials to assess its suitability for inclusion in the collection and has now been officially accepted. Cape Teaser will be available in the 2016 catalogue for our HSL members, from December.
