Description

Solanum lycopersicum

A Romanian variety of tomato producing large, heart-shaped fruit that weigh an average of 365g and measure about 8.5cm in diameter.

Big size means big taste with Captain Beefheart, and the eating quality – juicy flesh, tender skin and few seeds – of the fruit proves the point. To see for yourself, cut the fruit into thick slices, dust with some salt and pepper and dig in with a knife and fork – almost a meal in itself. For equally good eating, gently fry thick slices in a bit of olive oil as part of a Full English Breakfast – the pinnacle of British cooking has just been given a boost.

We’ve been growing Captain Beefheart for quite a few years, and decided it was time our customers shared our enjoyment.
