Fat Fruit - biggest and best!

I am pleased to announce the arrival
of the first tomato of the season
- Grosse Lisse
delivered safely by the Fat Fruit Greenhouse.

Sister for Capsicum and Chilli.

The facts are:
  • Two tomatoes were picked.
  • The larger one on the left was from the Fat Fruit Greenhouse the other out of the garden.
  • Both plants were grafted Grosse Lisse planted at the same time.
  • The Greenhouse delivered the larger fruit and the plant has lots more good sized fruit on it already.
  • The plant in the garden, although coming a dead heat in the race for first fruit, provided a smaller specimen AND has no other fruit set.

So the Green house wins...

Delicious, sweet little Broad Ripple Tomatoes.

More capsicums on the way.

These seeds germinated in two days!


  1. Fantastic!! You're certainly proving the case for a greenhouse!!!

  2. Hi Hazel - just to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award yesterday on my blog. Best wishes, x
