Edibles

Sweet ‘n’ Neat Tomato

An extra compact tomato suited for small containers. These tidy plants do not require pinching or pruning and they bear masses of cherry-sized fruit throughout the summer. Very sweet and full of flavour.


 

Cucamelon

We grew these at Greenland last year; tons of fruit on one little bush, taste is a combo of cucumber and lime.


 

Indigo Tomatoes

These colourful varieties all boast extremely high levels of antioxidants found in tomatoes. Heavy producers, everything from cherry to medium sized fruit. Colours change on the vine as fruit ripens.


 

VegiBee

The bee population is in rapid decline. Vegibee helps you pollinate your plants. The same thing is used in commercial greenhouses to pollinate tomatoes, cucumbers and more. More than 85% of the earth’s plant species need pollinators! 1 in 3 bites of food comes from plants pollinated by honeybees.
