AMERICAN PURPLE TOP SWEDE – A HAPPY VEGGIE THAT REALLY DIGS YOUR GARDEN! BREAKS UP THE SOIL AND AERATES – GIVES YOU GREAT STEWING AND ROASTING VEGGIES RIGHT WHEN YOU NEED THEM! IT’S PLANTING TIME!

This variety of swede, bred in America, features a luscious creamy root complemented by a vibrant purple top. It thrives with minimal effort, requiring only thinning to a spacing of at least 20 cm during growth. With its rich flavor, it lends itself perfectly to a variety of culinary uses, from soups and stews to roasting. For optimal taste, it’s best to sow the seeds in late summer or early autumn, as the cold weather sweetens up the roots and intensifies the flavor. While the roots typically mature in about 90 days, they can be harvested earlier if desired.

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in rich, well-draining soil.

Sow

Timing: Swedes are cool-weather crops, so plan to sow the seeds in late summer or early autumn. This timing allows the plants to mature during the cooler months, which enhances their flavor.

Site Selection: Choose a location in your garden that receives full sun to partial shade. Ensure the soil is well-draining.

Soil Preparation: Prepare the soil by loosening it to a depth of about 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 cm) and incorporating organic matter, such as compost, to improve soil structure and fertility.

Sowing Seeds: Sow the Swede Purple Top seeds directly into the prepared soil. Plant the seeds about ½ to 1 inch (1.25 to 2.5 cm) deep and space them at least 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) apart in rows spaced 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 cm) apart.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the seeds gently immediately after sowing and continue to water regularly, especially during dry spells.

Thinning: Once the seedlings emerge and develop their first true leaves, thin them to ensure proper spacing. Space the seedlings about 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) apart to allow room for the roots to develop.

Fertilizing: Swedes are moderate feeders, so fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer according to the manufacturer’s instructions, typically once or twice during the growing season.

Weeding and Mulching: Keep the area around the Swede Purple Top plants free from weeds, as they can compete for nutrients and water. Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as straw or shredded leaves, to help suppress weeds and retain soil moisture.

Harvesting: Swede Purple Top roots typically mature in about 90 days, but they can be harvested earlier if desired. The roots are ready to harvest when they reach a desirable size and have a firm texture. Use a garden fork to carefully lift the roots from the soil, being careful not to damage them.

PLANTING: Summer-Late Autumn and also Spring in cooler areas. Use a garden fork to loosen the soil and dig through well composted mulch. Water the soil the day prior to planting. Sow seeds directly into their final position, cover and don’t water again until seedlings emerge. Plant in a full sun location for best flowering. 


CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil. For an extra long flowering season, cut flowers for the house, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser

Sweet Pea ‘Mammoth’ is a variety of sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) known for its large, fragrant flowers and vigorous growth. The ‘Mammoth’ variety produces large, ruffled flowers that come in a range of vibrant colors, including shades of red, pink, blue, lavender, and white. The flowers are known for their strong, sweet fragrance, making them popular in gardens and floral arrangements. This variety is a vigorous climber, capable of reaching heights of 1.8 to 2.4 meters (6 to 8 feet) with proper support. The plants have strong stems, making them ideal for cutting and displaying in vases. Sweet Pea ‘Mammoth’ typically blooms from late spring to early summer. With regular deadheading (removal of spent flowers), the blooming period can be extended.

  1. Growing Conditions:
    • Light: Sweet peas thrive in full sun, requiring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.
    • Soil: They prefer well-draining, fertile soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Adding compost or organic matter can improve soil fertility.
    • Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during the growing and blooming periods.
  2. Planting:
    • Sowing Seeds: Sweet pea seeds can be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date or sown directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Soaking the seeds in water for 24 hours before planting can help improve germination.
    • Spacing: Plant seeds about 2.5 cm (1 inch) deep and 5-7.5 cm (2-3 inches) apart. Thin seedlings to 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) apart to give each plant adequate space to grow.
  3. Support:
    • Provide a trellis, fence, or other support structure for the vines to climb. This helps prevent the plants from sprawling on the ground and encourages better air circulation, reducing the risk of disease.
  4. Care and Maintenance:
    • Fertilization: Apply a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer at planting time and again mid-season to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.
    • Pruning: Regularly remove spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and prevent the plants from setting seed.
  5. Pest and Disease Management:
    • Watch for common pests such as aphids, slugs, and snails. Treat infestations promptly with appropriate organic or chemical controls.
    • Ensure good air circulation around the plants to minimize the risk of powdery mildew and other fungal diseases. Avoid overhead watering to reduce leaf wetness.

By providing the right conditions and care, Sweet Pea ‘Mammoth’ can be a stunning and fragrant addition to your garden.

GREAT DROUGHT FODDER AND A MAGNIFICENT FLOWERED SHRUB! TAGASTE OR TREE LUCERN – A VALUABLE SMALL TREE/SHRUB FOR SO MANY USES!

MAKES A GREAT WINDBREAK, ANIMALS LOVE TO EAT IT, BUTTERFLIES LOVE TO BROWSE ON IT’S FLOWERS AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL, TOUGH AND A QUICK GROWER!

Tagasaste is the name given on the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands, to the indigenous plant known botanically as Chamaecytisus palmensis. Also known as Cystisus proliferous.

This legume, belonging to the family Fabaceae, has been variously called tree lucerne, false tree lucerne and lucerne tree in Australia. For the sake of uniformity, tagasaste is preferred.

Tagasaste is a shrub or small tree growing to a height and crown diameter of about 5 m, often with long, drooping, leafy branches.

Variations occur, including upright and prostrate types. White flowers appear in profusion, usually in spring, though under some conditions flowering can commence in winter.

The flowers develop into flattened pods about 5 cm long, containing about 10 seeds. The seeds, which ripen in summer, are a flattened oval shape, about 5 mm long by 3 mm wide by 1 mm thick.

Tagasaste has been grown in Australia since at least 1879, when seeds were sent from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in England, and grown at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, whose director reported favourably on it as a drought-resistant fodder plant.

ADAPTABILITY-CLIMATE AND SOIL

Tagasaste grows well in a range of environments and, once established, handles climates ranging from those of the hot western wheat belt to those of the cool tablelands.

Fodder is currently the main use of tagasaste. The nutritive value of the foliage depends on the time of the year and the proportion of leaf to stem.

Mature tagasaste trees provide good shade and, if grown in closely planted hedgerows, form an excellent windbreak.

You may notice some in the holding container have started to germinate and may have their root appearing. Plant them out asap!

Grow Notes
Prefers full to part sun in well-draining soil.

Sow
In Spring or Summer I place a quantity of seeds, say a teaspoon, into a small ceramic ramekin and boil the kettle. I pour the water directly over the seeds to half of the ramekins depth. Then leave to cool.

Drain off that water. One or two may be swollen and have turned a dark brown colour.

These seeds are ready. Pick them out and put them into another ramekin with just enough water to keep them wet.

They will continue to swell in this water. I boil the kettle and pour it over the remaining seeds.

Repeat this procedure until all seeds or most are ready to plant.

This can take over a week for most, for all of the seeds to reveal themselves as ready to plant.

The seeds that are ready to sow – put them into some sand with a little potting mix or material that will retain a bit of moisture such as coconut coir or saw dust at 5mm depth.

Germination
15-30 days at 18-24°C

Maturity
200 days. Evergreen small tree.

The sweetest flowers in bright yellow really give a lift to the herb garden!

Mexican tarragon (Tagetes lucida), is native to Mexico, it been used since Aztec times both medicinally and as a flavouring in food.

Its long, rich history has resulted in many nicknames such as Mexican Mint Marigold, Sweet Mace, Yerba Anise and Pericon.

The Aztecs used Mexican tarragon as an incense and to flavour chocolate.

Traditional Mexican cultures used it medicinally to treat stomach ache, nausea, colds and fevers.

In modern Mexican culture, it is used to treat digestive upsets, as well as flavouring for eggs and meat dishes.

Mexican tarragon tastes like French tarragon with a slight anise flavour.

Although it tastes like French tarragon, Mexican tarragon is not a true tarragon (Artemisia). Instead, it is related to marigolds.

The foliage resembles tarragon but the flowers are definitely marigolds!

Method:
You can start your seeds under cover in the spring to early summer.

Germination should occur in 2 weeks.

You can transplant your seedlings into your garden when they are 2.5cm to 5cm tall and after all danger of frost has passed.

For best flavour, harvest the leaves before the plant blooms.

You can harvest small amounts of the leaves throughout the growing season.

New leaves will grow back to replace them.

In the Autumn, you can uproot the entire plant and hang it to dry for use during the winter.

Mexican tarragon is a good substitute for French tarragon because it can withstand the summer heat better.

Unlike French tarragon, which is added at the beginning of cooking, Mexican tarragon is more delicate and should be added at the end of the cooking time.

HERBALIST’S CORNER – A RARE MEDICINAL HERB – ARTEMISIA DRANUNCULUS – RUSSIAN TARRAGON – RARER TARRAGON THAN THE FRENCH, FASTER GROWER AND BETTER FOR SALADS AND HAS A WIDE RANGE OF MEDICINAL USES. ONCE IT’S GONE THIS POST WILL BE CLOSED SO GRAB IT NOW!

French tarragon vs Russian tarragon. French and Russian tarragon look alike, the Russian type seems to have taller more upright growth and its leaves are narrower.

Russian tarragon (Artemisia dracunculoides) has a bit stronger flavour and grassier tone.
The test is crushing a leaf between your fingers to release the aroma of this culinary herb.
Being not as strongly aromatic as its French cousin, Russian tarragon produces many more leaves from early spring onwards that are mild and good in salads and cooked food.
Remember that Russian tarragon loses what flavour it has as it ages so once picked, cook it quickly. The young stems in early spring can be cooked as an asparagus substitute.
The French tarragon is propagated only by root division, whereas the Russian one can be grown from seeds.

Medicinal Value of Russian Tarragon:
According to WebMD, you can use tarragon for:
Treating digestion problems
Aiding with poor appetite
Helping with water retention
Starts Menstruation, and
Lastly, helps with sleep.

Method:
You can start your seeds under cover in the spring to early summer.

Germination should occur in 2 weeks.

You can transplant your seedlings into your garden when they are 2.5cm to 5cm tall and after all danger of frost has passed.

For best flavour, harvest the leaves before the plant blooms.

You can harvest small amounts of the leaves throughout the growing season.

New leaves will grow back to replace them.

In the Autumn, you can uproot the entire plant and hang it to dry for use during the winter.

 

However, be cautious when using either Tarragons if you have an allergy to ragweed, daisies, or marigolds since the Tarragon plant is in the same family (Asteraceae/Compositae family.)
In addition, both Tarragons may slow blood clotting. According to WebMD, stop using both Tarragons at least 2 weeks before surgery since it may prolong bleeding before and after surgery.

Teasel (Dipsacus fullonum) is a distinctive biennial plant native to Europe, brought to North America where it thrives. Notably, each teasel plant produces around 3300 seeds, a treat for birds, making it a self-fertile species renowned for attracting wildlife.

In its second year, teasel blooms uniquely. Flowers initially form in a ring around the middle of the head, gradually widening over a few days. However, since the flowers are short-lived, the center of the blooming section may wither, leaving two rings—one growing upwards and one downwards. Long, leaf-like bracts extend from the base of the flower, curving upward around the head. Teasel boasts a thick taproot and fibrous secondary roots.

The egg-shaped flower heads are squared off at the base, with the entire flower head (peduncle) reaching 50 to 100 centimeters in height, consisting of tiny individual flowers measuring 10 to 15 mm long.

In its first year, teasel displays shiny, green rosette leaves with scalloped edges, stout hairs on the upper surface, and attaches to the stem via a leaf stalk (petiole). Second-year leaves on the flowering stem resemble rosette leaves but are smaller, oppositely arranged with two leaves per node, and feature short spines on the underside of the midrib. These leaves fuse around the stem, forming a saucer-like shape that collects rainwater.

Teasel remains low until its second year, when flowering stems emerge erect and branch near the upper portion. These stems feature angled profiles with numerous small downward-pointing prickles. Teasel can reach heights of 60 cm to 2.5 meters in its second year.

Widespread, common teasel thrives in pastures, abandoned fields, roadsides, and waste areas.

While young leaves are edible, caution is advised due to their spiny, stout hairs. Teasel leaves can be eaten raw, cooked, or blended into smoothies. The root is also useful, whether brewed into tea or used in making vinegar or tinctures, offering health benefits like inulin and a scabicidal property.

 

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in damp, coarse and fertile soils.

Sow
Sow direct in late Spring or early Summer at 6mm depth.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Germination
7-30 days at 16-25°C

Maturity
In the first year the plant only produces a rosette of leaves. The second year it can grow to almost 2.5 metres and has a unique flower head.

Besides its bright yellow colour, the plant’s next most striking feature is its intricate leaves. ‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes are elongated and cylindrical fruits that end with an offset, almost blunt tip, that gives this yellow tomato its ‘banana’ shape.  ‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes begin to ripen, take on a sunny yellow colour and form light yellow stripes. The fruits reach an average weight of about 80 grams and grow to about 10cm long. The fruit itself contains only a few seeds.

‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes taste similar to most yellow varieties: mild, sweet and fruity with little to hardly any acidity.

The tomato ‘Banana Legs’ was first bred in the US by John Swenson. To successfully breed this yellow tomato variety, Swenson mixed unnamed crosses from the famous tomato breeder Tom Wagner, who himself is responsible for cultivating the ‘ Green Zebra ’ tomato. The ‘Banana Legs’ tomato plant is a bush (determinate) tomato that only reaches around 100 to 120cm in height.

SUPERB REAL TOMATO TASTE! CHEROKEE PURPLE TOMATO IS THE BEST IN IT’S CLASS AND IT’S HUGE TOO! FEWER SEEDS THAN MOST AND THAT GORGEOUS COLOUR IS FANTASTIC! ONE OF THE MOST TRIED AND TESTED TOMATOES GROWING OVER A LONGER TIME FRAME!

Yummo! Cherokee Purple Tomato is so lusciously decadent!

You know how when you pluck a tomato off the vine and you sniff and get that real fresher than fresh tomato scent and it makes you go all nostalgic and it’s just such a thrill? Well these have the ability to produce all your tomato needs this summer! These are Cherokee Purple tomatoes!

They have a light row of seeds along the outer making them a firm style great for slicing, the flavour is simply amazing. They don’t need a whole lot of room, my friend has hers in the picture shown, there are four plants there and she has gotten off 20 to 30 kilos this past summer.

The taste is a true old style tomato taste, like they used to taste before they took the flavour out by breeding them for hard skins that would withstand heavy handling in the supermarkets. These are gorgeous too, purple fruits and just such a good one for disease resistance too.

A hint: If you like them in your garden soil, always plant tomatoes in a different spot in the garden every year to combat root nematodes, planting them in a different place will not allow the nematodes to get in and do any damage!

TOTALLY DELICIOUS! SWEET AND PRETTY ON THE VINE!

Perino is an indeterminate variety producing huge quantities of small sun-yellow fruits. The weight is about 20 gr. each, sweet with little acid, they are very tasty and look beautiful in the garden. Supermarkets charge a fortune for these little beauties – if your kids (or you) eat them like lollies, why not get your own plant going and you will get hundreds for just the price of this packet!

Indeterminate tomatoes have a vining or sprawling growth habit. They continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until they are killed by frost or other environmental factors.

Fruit Ripening: Indeterminate tomato plants produce fruit continuously, allowing for a prolonged harvest period. This characteristic makes them well-suited for gardeners who prefer a steady supply of fresh tomatoes over an extended period.

Ideal Use: Indeterminate varieties are often chosen by gardeners with larger spaces, such as those with ample garden beds or those using stakes or cages to support the vining growth. But you can also use pots and allow them the sprawl over the edge.

Prefers full sun in moist, well-draining soil.

GUARANTEED HEIRLOOM! NOT ONE OF THE NEW HYBRID TOMATOES HAVE THESE OLD-STYLE LEAVES! PURPLE AND RED FRUITS – SUCCULENT TASTE!
SUPRESSES WEEDS BY SHADING UNDERGROWTH, GUARANTEED 100% HEIRLOOM!
Potato leaf tomato varieties lack the lobes or notches seen on regular leaf tomatoes. They look very much the same as potato leaves. Young potato leaf tomato plants (seedlings) are less obvious in their difference, as they do not show this lack of serration until they are a few inches tall. Potato leaves seem to be more resistant to disease (maybe because they are the originals and have developed over many years).

 

Tomatoes and potatoes are related to each. As they are cousins, more or less, they share some of the same traits, including similar foliage.  At the end of the day, potato leaf tomatoes can be chalked up to just one of nature’s curious quirks, a good one that allows for further varieties of tomato to be grown even if just for fun.

Good for growing in heavy soils and hot climates, add compost and don’t grow tomatoes in the same spot every year. These have been known since 1887, and are a good market and home variety.

All potato leaved varieties are heirloom or older varieties. We haven’t been able to find a hybrid that is potato leaved.  Have some fun in your garden this season and try one (or more) of these unusual but delicious heirloom tomatoes!

PLEASE NOTE, TOMATOES SHOWN ARE AN INDICATION OF WHAT YOU MIGHT GET, THESE POTATO LEAVED TOMATOES WERE NOT PHOTOGRAPHED SO WE CAN ONLY GUESS, WE KNOW THEY ARE LARGE AND JUICY, GREAT FOR SALADS AND SANDWICHES.

San Marzano tomatoes are a variety of plum tomatoes that are prized for their rich flavor, meaty texture, and low acidity. They are considered one of the best tomatoes for making sauces, pastes, and canning due to their high solids content and intense flavor.

San Marzano tomatoes originated in the San Marzano sul Sarno region of Italy, near Naples. They are a type of plum tomato, known scientifically as Solanum lycopersicum, and belong to the Solanaceae family. Traditionally, San Marzano tomatoes are grown in the volcanic soil of the Campania region, which is believed to contribute to their unique flavor profile.

Growth Habits: San Marzano tomato plants are indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until frost kills the plant. They typically reach heights of 1.2 to 1.8 meters and require staking or support to keep the heavy fruit off the ground. The fruits are elongated and pointed, with thick flesh and few seeds. San Marzano tomatoes are known for their deep red colour and distinctive flavor, which is both sweet and tangy.

How to Grow from Seed:

  1. Seed Starting: Start San Marzano tomato seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area. Use a seed-starting mix or potting soil in seed trays or small pots. Plant the seeds 6 mm deep and water them lightly.
  2. Germination: Place the seed trays or pots in a warm location with temperatures between 21°C to 27°C) Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Tomato seeds typically germinate within 7 to 14 days.
  3. Seedling Care: Once the San Marzano tomato seedlings have emerged, provide them with plenty of light. Keep the soil evenly moist and fertilize the seedlings with a diluted liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks.
  4. Transplanting: Transplant the San Marzano tomato seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil. Space the plants 0.6 to 0.9 meters apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.
  5. Support: Install stakes or tomato cages around the San Marzano tomato plants to support them as they grow. Tie the main stems to the stakes or cages using soft garden twine to prevent them from bending or breaking under the weight of the fruit.
  6. Watering and Fertilizing: Water the San Marzano tomato plants regularly, providing about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) of water per week, adjusting based on rainfall and weather conditions. Fertilize the plants every 3 to 4 weeks with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and fruit production.
  7. Pruning: Remove any suckers that develop in the leaf axils of the San Marzano tomato plants to encourage larger fruits and better air circulation. You can also prune away any yellowing or diseased leaves to maintain plant health.
  8. Harvesting: San Marzano tomatoes are ready to harvest when they reach full size and deep red color. Gently twist or cut the fruits from the vine, being careful not to damage the stems or surrounding foliage. Store harvested tomatoes at room temperature and use them promptly for best flavor and quality.

This odd looking tomato is actually a rare Peruvian heirloom . Actually a cluster of smaller fruits stuck together, it was bred for the convenience of locals trekking the Andes. Pull them apart and eat one at a time; no need for a knife.

The bright red fruit have a distinctive flavour, tart, intense, never boring. In warm climates, plants keep growing from one year to the next, so vigorous it can take a chain saw to cut one down!

The most novel tomato we have seen, this tomato is like a big bunch of cherry tomatoes all fused together: an amazing trait that had everyone here asking questions about the alien-looking, bumpy tomatoes. Also called “Traveller Tomato” (“reise” is German for “travel” or “journey”).

‘Silvery Fir Tree’ plants are compact (45 TO 55CM) with interesting, unusual, delicate, lacy leaves. Some gardeners report that it does not require staking. However with the weight of the fruit, we found that it does benefit from support. The fruit are red in colour and weigh up to 280 grams each, have a meaty texture, and deliver an excellent, balanced flavour.

In Russian it is called ‘Serebristaya El’ which translates to “Silvery Fir Tree” in English. It is an old Russian variety that was introduced to American seed savers in the early 1990s by Marina Danilenko, a pioneering private seed seller from Moscow (see below) during the Perestroika-era.

Tatura has a long history in Australia, the last picture we show is in NSW. 1944-02-01. Prisoners of war can be seen picking Tatura Dwarf Globe tomatoes which they have grown for seed on the unit’s vegetable farm.

It was this work that lead to Tatura being one of the most popular tomatoes at the time, since then it has been reduced in production and it’s become a little bit rare.

THIS TOMATO IS A MOUTHFUL TO SAY BUT IS VERY EASY TO EAT! WAPSIPINICON PEACH IS A RARE LARGE CHERRY TOMATO, IT’S BLUSHES ARE ADORABLE AND IT’S TASTE IS SUPREME! RICH AND FRUITY – IT’S GORGEOUS IN THE GARDEN AND DELIGHTFUL ON THE PLATE! GOURMET AT IT’S BEST!

Wapsipinicon Peach – whoah – how do you pronounce that? An unpronounceable mouthful of consonants hasn’t stopped ‘Wapsipinicon Peach’ being pronounced delicious in tomato taste tests.

The very soft skin coloured very similar to a peach accounts for the peach reference, and the rest is a river in Iowa! We call it a Wapsi and think it’s a beauty!

‘Wapsipinicon Peach’ is an indeterminate variety, meaning that it will grow as long as the season or the gardener allows it to.

A neutral to slightly acidic pH is preferred, so don’t overdo the lime either.

‘Wapsi’ fruit gets to about the size of a golf ball, and blushes to a beautiful creamy yellow when fully ripe. And, as those taste test panels find, the flavour is a knockout – rich and fruity with the slightest tang.

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in moist, well-draining soil.

It may be necessary to supply a stake or alternate support for the plant such as a tomato cage.

Keep well-watered, water the soil not the leaves. To reduce the risk of disease do not water overhead.

Rotate crops: do not plant in the same position two years in a row to combat nematodes.

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring or early or very late Summer. Planting seeds at a depth of 5mm with 50cm plant spacing and 70cm row spacing.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

THIS DELICIOUS TOMATO IS A MEDIUM SIZED CHERRY TOMATO WITH THE TRUE TOMATO FLAVOUR! IT’S PROLIFIC SO SHARE THEM AROUND! NOT LIKELY TO BE ATTACKED BY BIRDS/RATS/MICE ETC AS THEY DON’T SEEM TO RECOGNISE THE COLOUR AS RIPE.

They ripen from green through to white and depending on soils and sun can mature to a pale yellow, and that ivory-cream colour persists throughout the interior flesh. They are deliciously sweet and juicy without being sugary, and notes of citrus and pineapple balance their flavour. The compact indeterminate plants grow an average of four to six feet tall, and are highly productive throughout the season.

Their pale colour earned them their name, which is appropriately pure and sweet although they actually turn more of a creamy yellow colour when fully mature. They offer far more of a concentrated tomato flavour than most other white varieties.

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, and they contain good amounts of vitamin B and vitamin A. They are a good source of iron and calcium, and also contain decent amounts of phosphorus, sulphur, and potassium.

These cherry tomatoes are great for snacking, or as an addition to fresh salads. They are sweet and delicious on their own, but can also be enhanced by fresh herbs and spices, such as basil, cilantro, chives, dill, garlic, mint, paprika, rosemary, oregano, parsley, thyme, and tarragon. Store tomatoes at room temperature until ripe, after which refrigeration can slow the process of decay.

Cherry tomatoes were the first tomato species to be domesticated. They are descendants of the wild tomato, which traces back millions of years the coastal regions of South America. However, archaeological evidence suggests that cherry tomatoes were first cultivated further north in Central America by the Aztecs and Incas as early as 700 AD. The tomato was introduced to Spain in the 16th century by the conquistadors and soon spread throughout Europe, however it wasn’t until the mid 1800’s that the tomato became widespread.

This cherry tomato was developed by Joe Bratka, famous tomato collector from New Jersey who has bred several other varieties including the popular candy cherry tomato.

THIS ONE IS THE RARER YELLOW FORM, THOUSANDS OF TOMATOES WILL BE YOURS – SHARE THEM WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! THEY ARE SWEET AND SUCCULENT, AMAZING IN SALADS AND A TREAT TAKEN DIRECT FROM THE BUSH!

Currant tomatoes are the smallest edible tomato, each fruit weighing an average of just three grams and measuring half of an inch in diameter. The round yellow fruits are notable for their strong, sweet-tart flavour and firm, juicy texture.

They are thin-skinned and glossy, and their flesh contains two cells that tend to be seedy, but packed with an exceptionally sweet, true tomato flavour due to their high levels of both sugar and acid when ripe.

The strong, sprawling indeterminate plants are disease resistant and high yielding, producing copious amounts of the tiny fruit throughout the season. The miniature fruit hangs in clusters resembling red currants, hence their name.

Current Facts

Currant tomatoes are members of the large and diverse Solanaceae family, also known as the Nightshade family, which includes more than three thousand known species.

Currant tomatoes are botanically named Solanum Pimpinellifolium, and they are an independent species of tomatoes, one of two edible species alongside the common tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum.

TOONA SINESIS IMPORTED FROM JAPAN! AN EDIBLE PINK TREE! A REAL MAHOGANY TREE THAT CAN BE GROW IN A POT OR AS A BONSAI – IS A FOOD SOURCE (THE GROWING TIPS ARE DELICIOUS AND HAVE AN ONION FLAVOUR) AND IT HAS A SPECTACULAR JAW DROPPING COLOUR TOO!

DEPENDING ON THE POLLINATION, WEATHER AND SOIL YOU MAY GET RED, ORANGE/RED (CALLED ORANGE FLAME), PURPLE, WHITE OR PINK OR A MIXTURE. SIMPLY AMAZING!

Toona sinensis (syn. Cedrela sinensis A.Juss.; Chinese mahogany, Chinese toon, or red toon (Chinese: ??; pinyin: xi?ngch?n; Hindi: daaraluu; Malay: suren; Vietnamese: tông dù) is a species of Toona native to eastern and southeastern Asia, from North Korea south through most of eastern, central and southwestern China to Nepal, northeastern India, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and western Indonesia.

It is a deciduous tree growing to 25 metres (82 ft) tall with a trunk up to 70 cm diameter. The bark is brown, smooth on young trees, becoming scaly to shaggy on old trees. The flowers are produced in summer in panicles 30–50 cm long at the end of a branch; each flower is small, 4–5 mm diameter, with five white or pale pink petals. The fruit is a capsule 2–3.5 cm long, containing few seeds.

The young leaves of T. sinensis (xi?ngch?n) are extensively used as a vegetable in China; they have a floral, yet onion-like flavor, attributed to volatile organosulfur compounds. Plants with red young leaves are considered of better flavour than those where the young leaves are green.

The timber is hard and reddish; it is valuable, used for furniture making and for bodies of electric guitars. Being a “true mahogany” (mahogany other than Swietenia), it is one of the common replacements for Swietenia mahogany (“genuine mahogany”) which is now commercially restricted from being sourced natively.

THE SEEDS ARE LARGE, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Prefers full to part sun in well-draining soil.

Sow

OR

Plant seeds in Spring a clean pot with damp soil, add a very light covering of sand, glad wrap the entire thing and wait.

Once seeds germinate, using a pop stick, pot them up with potting compost and water in well – when you move them hold them by the leaves to be sure not to damage the roots.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Germination
7-14 days at 17-25°C

Maturity
Deciduous tree growing to 25m.

VAMPIRE’S VERVAIN HAS BEEN MADE FAMOUS BY THE VAMPIRE SERIES AS VERVAIN WAS THE ONLY THING THAT COULD PROTECT YOU AGAINST BEING SUCKED ON AND INFLUENCED BY VAMPIRES! IT HAS SOME OTHER USES TOO…

Vervain is a slender perennial plant with small, pale lilac flowers borne on leafless spikes. It is indigenous to the Mediterranean but has been cultivated widely throughout eastern Europe, North Africa, China, and Japan. The name “verbenae” originally was used in Roman times to describe all plants used on altars for their aromatic qualities.

The aerial parts have been used traditionally for many conditions, including stimulation of lactation and treatment of dysmenorrhea, jaundice, gout, kidney stones, headache, depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Vervain is also considered an astringent, a bitter digestive tonic, and a diuretic.

Always consult a medical practitioner before embarking on any program. The information on this page is not diagnostic, therefore always consult a herbal practitioner or your GP in order to obtain a diagnosis. Never stop taking prescribed treatment without consulting your GP or a qualified herbal practitioner. Do not take without qualified medical advice.
In pregnancy there are documented adverse reactions. Avoid use.
There is no clinical evidence to support specific dose recommendations for vervain. Traditional use for its astringent properties required 2 to 4 g daily in an infusion.

Grow Notes
Prefers full to part shade in well-draining soil.

Frost resistant but drought tender.

Sow
Sow direct in late Winter to early Spring so the seeds can sit in cold, damp soil prior to germination. Sow on the surface of the soil, barely covering but tamping down to ensure good soil contact.

If raising seedlings, or planting late, place into the fridge for 2 weeks on a damp paper towel in a zip lock bag prior to potting up. Tamp down and don’t cover with soil, as they need light to germinate.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Germination
21-31 days at 15-25°C
