Today is the last part of the TomatoLover series on the 5 most popular tomato seeds for home gardeners.
Moneymaker was joint 4th in my seed poll along with Alicante. Of the 23 seed sites I searched it could be bought from 11.
This is what the seed suppliers had to say:

To buy Moneymaker:
Packets averaged between 50 and 75 seeds per packet. Average seed priced worked out at .016 pence per seed.
A good old fashioned variety proven over time. Is Moneymaker the perfect tomato to grow in the current economic climate? There also seems to be some discord on the flavour . How would you rate Moneymaker for flavour ?
