This Slab of Seed will grow you two delicious heirloom varieties of tomatoes

  • Principe Borghese tomatoes are an Italian heirloom, famous for sun drying. Vines yield clusters of fruit in abundance. They have thin skin and a thick, very meaty flesh that houses few seeds and little juice, with a rich classic tomato flavour. The crack-resistant fruit grows in clusters on hardy, fast-growing determinate plants, which spread laterally and ripen all at once. Principe Borghese tomatoes are a favourite for sun drying because they retain their colour and flavour more than most other varieties. Principe Borghese tomatoes date back to the 1910s in southern Italy. The Spanish originally brought the tomato back to Europe after Cortez conquered Mexico City in the 16th century, and the climate in Italy allowed for many new varieties of tomato to develop with intense flavour. Principe Borghese is known to be heat tolerant and very hardy
    • Tasting note: Rich classic tomato flavour
  • Moneymaker tomatoes are old English heirlooms that date back over 100 years to 1913. They are good producers and a much-loved garden variety today. They can continue to grow all summer, resulting in a long season of plenty of fresh tomatoes! It produces plenty of smooth, round, medium-sized clusters of tomatoes. Moneymaker plants can grow up to two metres tall and produce in clusters of 6-10 fruits. As they ripen,  Moneymaker tomatoes turn deep red and weigh around 100g each. The tomatoes have a fruity flavour that is balanced with sweet and sour notes. At the end of each season, Moneymaker tomato plants can be propagated using their own seeds
    • Tasting note: Sweet & meaty

About Sow Delicious

In 2013, Vanessa Jacobs set out to find the simplest way to grow a garden fit for a foodie, giving people the opportunity to proudly plant a garden that is Sow Delicious! She came up with the idea for the ‘Slab of Seed’ which might look like a slab of chocolate, but is made from a special blend of organically enriched super-soil and infused with rare heirloom seed – the purest & oldest seed on earth which is also non-GMO. The slabs are handmade in a unique little chocolate factory in the heart of Eden in The Garden Route.
