Hi Shallotman, There is an article in the new Garden Organic members' magazine about the Clibran's Victory tomato. It was introduced by Clibran's Ltd seed merchants of Altrincham, Cheshire in 1918 and commercially grown for many years. It is no longer sold commercially but is obtainable from the Heritage Seed Library, so may be on offer in their next catalogue if you join, or know someone who is a member.

Sallotman. Hope you are able to obtain some seeds and run a trial. Always interested to hear how people get on with new varieties.

I,ve always regarded thin skinned tomatoes as having a disadvantage from a keeping point of view but some of the new supermarket cherry plum tomatoes veer in totally the opposite direction. However they do seem to store well. I don,t keep my tomatoes in the fridge and being stored in a warming kitchen does test their keeping ability. Can anybody list the main advantages of a thin skinned tomato?
