Re: Winter Tomatoes?

Hi Tim, I am farming in South Africa with tomatoes in tunnels. Our problem is that the winters are very cold - below freezing.The climate during winter is very dry with no rainfall or mist and the day temperatures vary between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius. That means that with the available varieties we must heat the tunnels at very high cost.
Can you recommend a variety for this type of conditions and give an indication of the price of the seed.

Warm South African regards.
