Thai Basil - Organic

As its name suggests, this species of basil grows naturally in Southeast Asia.

Very popular in Thai cuisine, it spices up soups, stir-fries and spicy dishes. It produces particularly well in hot weather and in containers, but it should not then lack water.

Red Robin Tomato - Organic

An exclusive : the Red Robin tomato, lineage of Martin Lejardinier 

Les Jardins de l'écoumène are pleased to announce that it is now possible to purchase a line of the Red Robin tomato exclusively on its online store. 

About ten years ago, Martin Lejardinier, well known for his numerous YouTube capsules on indoor gardening, purchased Red Robin tomato seeds in Peru. According to sources, this variety originated in England or the United States, but it is known to have been cultivated in the 19th century. Since then, by choosing the most compact and productive plants, he obtained the Red Robin tomato, the line of Martin Lejardinier. The stability of the cross makes it an open pollinated cultivar. 

This compact and determined variety is no more than 30 cm high and wide, and it produces many scarlet cherry tomatoes. The juicy, thin-skinned fruits have a sweet and tangy taste. 

This variety has always been grown indoors and is therefore particularly suited to these conditions. However, it is possible to grow it outside. 

Very resistant to diseases, this tomato tolerates difficult growing conditions and does not require much care. 

 Because of its ease of cultivation, it is also a must for beginners in indoor gardening. 

 Outdoors, the Red Robin tomato, a Martin Lejardinier line, prefers pots or window boxes. In the open ground, its small size must be taken into account in the layout of the vegetable garden. 

This plant is cultivated in a pot of 15 to 30 cm of diameter. Pots of 23 cm in diameter containing 3 to 4 liters of potting soil are ideal if one does not want to water too often. Harvest time is 70 to 90 days depending on growing conditions. 

Orange Hat Tomato - organic

This cute little variety produces small orange fruits on extra dwarf bushy plants that reach just 6-9 inches in height. Despite her small stature, her plants are very prolific, offering oodles of cherry tomatoes that burst with a fruity flavour. Perfect for a container on the deck or indoors on the window ledge, a plant will comfortably fit in a 6 inch pot, though a bigger pot will produce better plants with more fruit. Determinate. 65 days to maturity.
