Tomato, Cyril’s Choice (Organic)
$3.50 – $28.00
Solanum lycopersicum. 50-60 days. Det. Dwarf.
An early dwarf tomato that is also very productive for such small vines. Plants produce several flushes of dark red fruit, yielding later into the season than other determinate types. Fruit are little two to three bite saladettes with good sweet flavor. At 2′ tall they are good for container gardening, a little taller than Gundula. Our friend Tera, formerly of Morning Sun Nursery, used them for container sales and said they were the cutest tomato plants she had ever seen. Rugose, regular-leafed foliage give Cyril’s Choice a special style. An English family heirloom, kept alive by D. Rankilor whose brother, Cyril, grew it on his allotment before he died. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project in 2007 by the Heritage Seed Library in England.
