Coriander Calypso, created by Tozer Seeds was a breakthrough variety and is widely recognized as the slowest bolting variety available. It also has a low growing point making it suitable for ‘cut and come again’ production. Our work on coriander has also led to the innovative Confetti type, ideal for baby leaf salads.

Our development of basil has led to the introduction of Crimson King, the most uniform and best tasting red variety available. Much of our basil work is now focused on producing varieties more suited to Northern European climates and more able to withstand damage during processing. British Basil is the latest example of this work.
