Unusual and interesting-looking varieties of tomatoes and other vegetables are at the heart of Angela and Anthony Tringham’s passionately run business.
As well as selecting lesser-known varieties, another way in which the Curious Croppers family do things a little differently is in allowing a mini ecosystem to thrive, through less human intervention. To this end, they let their tomatoes self-seed, and they prefer to use insects and sticky traps rather than harmful sprays in order to keep pests under control.
Curious Croppers like to keep their crops under stress – limited water and space, they say, are two of the secrets to yielding maximum flavour. And oh boy are Curious Croppers tomatoes famous for their flavour - that, and their rakish good looks, have seen them become regulars on the menus of top restaurants around the country.
