SETTLER SEEDS: Garden Greens - Tomato

$5.90

Tomato, Rouge de Marmande

If you are going to grow anything yourself for flavour, make it a tomato. Once you've tasted your own proudly grown fruit (yep it's technically a fruit!) you'll never go back to those floury red cricket balls at the grocery shop again. You'll taste the difference and enjoy watching them twirl up a trellis or stake like a real growing connoisseur.
