Ratings & Reviews

Tomato- Principe Borghese

These tomatoes are 'bullet proof'. I absolutely love them. I live in Brisbane and had problems growing the Black Russian variety because the caterpillars devoured them. I got several kg of fruit out of 4 PB plants and only 3 or 4 grubbed fruit. Next time I intend to use a proper tomato cage to support them better.
