Want high yields and tasty fruit? Then this is the tomato for you (as confirmed by RHS and Gardening Which? trials).
Fruit type: classic, round
Hybrid. If you want both high yields and good taste in a classic tomato, then Akron is an excellent choice. The tall-growing plants produce copious amounts of deep red fruit on heavily laden trusses.
Akron was the best producer in a trial conducted by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2013, when it was given an Award of Garden Merit. And then, in 2019, Akron was the second best yielder in a Which? Gardening trial. The fruit were highly rated for taste in both trials.
Indeterminate (cordon) growth habit.
Approximate number of seeds per pack: 12
