Homegrown tomatoes


SIR – I am old enough to remember the vast acres of glasshouse­s in Worthing producing the famous Worthing tomatoes (Letters, February 27). Where are they now?

I suspect they have been given over to warehousin­g, light industry and the inevitable huge garden centre. In Hertfordsh­ire there used to be fields of sugar beet. They are now housing estates.

Britain can grow stuff brilliantl­y. We just need to return to the common sense of eating in season.
