Heritage tomatoes - they don't make them like they used to!

It is nearly the end me November and I have left a tomato plant in a small raised bed as an experiment. The variety is Tibet Appel, which I got last year from Garden Organic's Heritage Seed Library. The plant was late and the claim is that the seed came from Tibet and thrives outside in cooler conditions. Well it has been very chilly in Norfolk and the fruits are still developing well. Only got 3 fruits but at least that will be plenty to get seeds from for next year. If you want to grow vegetables that are more diverse, interesting and taste better in many cases, them I recommend joining the Heritage Seed Library. Could be a good Christmas gift for someone?
