Tomato Angelle

A red Cherry open pollinated tomato on Indeterminate plants

Description

From the 2018 Seed Swap saved from a supermarket purchase. Now, I don't entirely agree with doing this, partly because commercial tomatoes are usually F1 hybrids (the commercial growers need consistency which heritage and open pollinated varieties don't necessarily give) and I've also found that the names on supermarket packets of tomatoes are usually a "brand" so they can provide tomatoes from a number of sources under the same name.

According to what I can find on the web, these were developed by Syngenta who are a global organisation. I've looked on their website and, whilst they give detailed instructions on how to grow them, there is no information about how to acquire them or whether they are F1 hybrid or not.

However, they seem to be quite popular so I'll give them a try.

So, I think it will possibly be a determinate, grape shaped cultivar. However, we shall see.
