About Ailsa Craig (Elsa Craig, Alisa Craig)

‘Ailsa Craig’ has been grown by UK gardeners for over a hundred years. It was developed in Ayrshire, Scotland, from the cross made by Alan Balch between ‘Fillbasket’ and ‘Sunrise’ tomato at the beginning of the 20th century. Named after a rocky, granite island in Ayrshire, Scotland, situated in the South Ayrshire Council area of Scotland, near the mouth of the Firth of Clyde and 10 miles off the South Ayrshire coast. First introduced in 1908. This variety won an ‘RHS Award of Garden Merit’ in 1911.
Vigorous, indeterminate, regular leaf plant with small (2-3oz./60-80g), round, glossy, red fruits with thin skin and smooth texture. Excellent tomato tastes, perfectly sweet, and acidic balanced flavors. In cool and rainy summers, the fruit is susceptible to cracking. Good diseases resistance. Midseason, about 70 to 85 days from transplant.
