Shirley has been a very popular round salad tomato since the 1970s when it was introduced. It produces evenly sized, bright red fruit that have a great texture and a delicious flavour that’s the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. Thanks to its F1 vigour, it bears heavy crops of excellent quality fruit. Shirley is the ideal variety for growing in a greenhouse or similar protected structure. It is highly resistant to many problems that hinder tomatoes, such as tobacco mosaic virus and fusarium. Sow in March and April to harvest from July to October.
