This classic variety Tomato Grosse Lisse is popular, for good reason. This vigorous variety produces large, bright red 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 Grosse Lisse is one of the earliest 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. Marigolds can be inter-planted with this tomato variety, as they act as a natural insect pest repellent.
