Dutch breeder Prudac’s portfolio already includes 16 pot tomatoes. Now the company adds to the Do, Re, Mi varieties of the Ponchi line: compact tomato Ponchi-F1 Fa.
Fa is described as fresh and juicy, sweet (Brix 10) and a soft skin. “Easy to transport. No yellow leaves when the fertilization is correct. Suitable for 10.5-12 cm pots. Short crop time, 12 weeks from seed until the first red fruits.”
The Patio tomato Tutti-Frutti F1 line includes three varieties. Red Berry [pictured] is the latest addition. “Small fruited with long bunches. Sweet, small tomatoes. Easy to pick from the bunch and delicious to eat for the hobby gardener and on the patio or balcony.”
Prudac will be presenting the new pot tomatoes at the European FlowerTrials 2017 (June 13-16).

So does Danish breeder Dalina Genetics, known for their Dahlia, Osteospermum and Gentiana breeding. The company added pot vegetables like tomato and sweet pepper to its portfolio. At the European FlowerTrials 2017 Dalina shows new pot tomatoes for growing in very small pots; smaller than 12cm. “We are the first in the world to combine a good looking plant with a great tasting tomato”, claims the Danish breeder which supplies both finished products, seeds and plugs.
