Bishop Castle Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)
Plants of this variety bear many red, almost round fruits of 120 to 170 grams in clusters of 3 to 5 fruits. Their red, juicy, tasty flesh is very balanced in taste. Resistant to cracking and disease, the fruits keep very well once picked. Originally from Switzerland and grown in Sissoch since 1930 by Walter and Marie M?ller-Linder, the family took them with them to British Columbia when they immigrated in 1952. They were grown in greenhouses for a long time, then their daughter Christine Wiebe gave seeds to François Lebel, who displayed them in the catalog of the Seeds of Heritage. We tried them and were pleasantly surprised. Try them out yourself!
