Meet the Croatian tomato variety grower in England

Croatian tomatoes have left a big impression on the tastebuds of many tourists, including one who decided he wanted to grow his own back in his native England.

“About ten years ago, I spent a week on holiday in Poreč and was talking to a local Croatian tomato grower and asked her did she have any seeds to spare, she replied saying she was out of seeds at the moment and was waiting to go to Split where she got them from an old lady. The day before we were to return to England, she presented to me two large tomatoes and said use the seeds from these,” James Grafton tells us before continuing.

“The morning we arrived home, after removing some seeds, I had them for breakfast. They were very juicy, solid, and meaty, with a good taste, and for the past ten years, I have saved the seeds and been growing them. They are a big favorite of friends and neighbors who I give some to when I have a good crop.”
