Tomato – Ancient Epidavros
This variety is from Ancient Epidavros in Eastern Peloponnese. I found it a small roadside market stall and was so impressed with the full flavour of Greece. The vendor broke a fruit open for me to taste at the stall – try that with modern supermarket tomato! It’s a large round, juicy tomato with soft skin and delicious flavour. I haven’t seen the plant growing so you need to experiment a little. Also the name was made up by me – as the grower did not know the name – it was just a variety that was passed on from generation to generation.
