These are long season varieties that produce large sweet fruit. We always grow a few for their deliciousness, but don't rely on them as they yield poorly in cool summers.

Paul Robeson
Our Price: €2.50

An early variety of medium sized, slightly flattened black tomatoes with terrific flavour. Like many of these black tomatoes, they perform well in a poor summer, developing flavour better than the red beefsteaks, in the absence of good sunshine. This may be because the originated in Russia, where summers are short. They tend to produce a lot of fruit quite early and then if they are fed and watered a later flush as well. The first ripe fruit was on 1st July 2017. Not quite a bush but don't get very tall.  Average 25 seeds/packet
White Wonder
Our Price: €2.50

Ani indeterminate variety with lots of large creamy white tomatoes, with a mild sweet flavour. It is great in a multicolored tomato marinade or for making sauces. It ripens mid season.
Ox Heart
Our Price: €2.50

Beautiful big, pink, oval, pointed fruit with a fine sweet old-fashioned flavour. This tomato is also early. Sow from January to March. As this is an indeterminate type it needs to be supported and have its side shoots removed. Harvest July on. This variety came to Brown Envelope Seeds from Mirjam Bloem, thank you Mirjam it was a real favorite this year. I especially liked the melt in the mouth texture.
