Burpee Europe have bred a new tomato for 2020, ‘Consuelo F1’.
‘Consuelo F1’ is an indeterminate, blight resistant variety with large cherry sized fruits. It can be grown outside as a staked or supported plant or in an unheated greenhouse. Plants will produce ripe fruits in late July outside from a mid-April sowing and earlier crops can be achieved in a greenhouse or polytunnel. The 25g fruit have a Brix level of around 9% and are therefore sweet but with a pleasing acid tang.
