14 Review(s) with an average rating of:
4.9

As well as its ability to shrug off even the worst blight, Crimson Crush will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large, round tomatoes (each weighing up to 200g). Bred for outdoor growing, it's the tomato that everyone should be planting this year. (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.)

  • This is not just a blight resistant tomato it is a blight beating tomato. Never be disappointed with your tomato crop when blight strikes again 
  • Ideal for the home or the allotment

Please note: With regards to the nature of the blight resistance, plants can still show infection (up to 10-15%) of leaves, stems etc. without effecting fruit quality or yield. The plants having the resistance to be able to grow away from the attack.

TOM EXPLAINS THE TECHNICAL STUFF YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW…
This variety is unique in that it has two resistance genes to Phytopthera infestans (Late Blight), giving it full resistance to all strains of blight currently found in the UK. So if blight spores come into contact wth the plant the infection will not spread throughout the plant.

It's been bred using natural methods and has been tested throughout the breeding process using Marker Assisted Selection (MAS).

Amazing, in a very rainy, wet summer the plants are still growing well, no blight. Tomatoes taste great too, will definitely grow again.

Fabulous plants - strong, healthy plants right the way through to October both indoors and outdoors, producing masses of the most tasty tomatoes we've ever grown. Even the green ones we removed from the plants are still ripening up in the conservatory. I have already ordered more of these seeds for next year. Fully recommend.

These tomatoes are truly outstanding. This year I planted them next to several traditional varieties. Last week (early Oct) I had to remove all the other plants due to blight. The Crimson Crush plants stood tall and healthy laden with a fantastic crops of tomatoes and, frost permitting, I expect to keep cropping for several more weeks. The tomatoes are tasty and juicy. This plant has exceeded my expectations.

Only a qualified success in my experience. Plants grew strongly and began to crop well but from end September most began to develop signs of blight which blackened the fruits and gradually killed the plants. May try again.

This is an excellent tomato - large, tasty fruits. You do need to keep an eye on them, though, as they have a tendency to split next to the calyx when ripe. Although not affected by blight during the summer, the plants were severely affected by mid September with about a quarter of the remaining fruit affected, as well as most of the foliage. However, this part of Sussex does these days seem to be a hot-spot for blight and Crimson Crush has fared better than any other variety I have grown. Maybe some clever scientist can transfer the blight resistance gene from Sarpo Axona potatoes so we can have an even more blight-resistant tomato.
