Terenzo F1: Vigorous variety, well adapted for hanging baskets. Tidy low-growing, high yielding trailing plants, only 25 – 30 cm height. Very easy to grow cherry tomato with great flavour, quite resistant to cracking and easy to pick throughout summer.
Lizzano F1: The first late blight (Phytophthora infestans) tolerant cherry fruited semideterminate variety on the market. It produces vigorous, healthy plants. High yields of great tasting fruits, allowing continuous harvesting over a long period.
Fantastico F1: Grape-sized tomatoes, trailing determinate variety with an attractive bushy growing habit and some late blight (Phytophthora infestans) tolerance. Plants produce masses of sweet tasting fruits which have an excellent shelf life.
