Blightproof tomatoes?

Tomato Cherry Late Blight Resistant (Lycopersicon esculentum) - Koralik



Determinate variety with high yields of small fruit. Late maturing with exceptionally high tolerance to blight. Use for salads or to make chutnies.
Will thrive outside in wet seasons where other varieties fail. Grow in container on patio or in open beds.

Mentioned on Gardeners World last evening... this is the only supplier I can find at this time...


95p for 30 seeds... a bargain... but there is a minimum order ammount and a quid for postage... just had to give them a go.

Can't wait to find out if you end up liking them.

At school, getting tomatoes on a sandwich or the like now comes at a premium costs due to the freeze in Florida this season.  I'm bummed out as I love tomatoes on my sandwiches.

I like the aroma as they grow too.... then along comes the Blight :grumpy:

I heard that a THIRD of the UK potato crop was blighted this year, and farmers are trying to blame people who grow tomatoes in their gardens.
