  • We grew some little yellow tomatoes this year. Had heaps, literally hundreds. I don't know what they are called but they have been fantastic. I will grow them again next year but would like to know the name.


    • Hi Wendy, it is hard to know what variety you have growing, it could be Golden Pear Drop or Sunshine 100, especially if your local garden centre stocks Zealandia seedlings. Try saving seed from this seasons crop, scoop out the seed, wash the pulp off the seed and dry on a paper towel, once dry store seed in a cool dry place until it is time to sow tomato seeds in late winter early spring. If the seed is a hybrid then you will get a variation from the original plant due to cross pollination, but if it is a heritage variety then you will get true to type yellow tomatoes.
