The variety Tomato Canakkale Ozel Domates is a traditional heirloom variety, taken straight from the centre of the tomato growing provinces of Marmara, in western Turkey. This relatively vigorous variety produces large, bright red irregularly shaped fruit, which actually taste the way tomatoes should! Fragrant, sweet and juicy with a smooth texture, unlike the rubbery pulp the supermarkets call tomatoes these days! The variety Tomato Canakkale Ozel Domates is one of the earlier fruiting varieties of tomato, which is both long-lived, and a strong producer, which is sure to provide an extremely rewarding experience for any gardener. This variety does best if it is staked (not compulsory) and remember, like all tomato varieties, will require a sunny spot in the garden and for the leaves to remain dry during watering.
