These seeds were from Garden Organic - they feature in their 'Adopt A Veg' section: "The Cyril in question lived in Essex and grew his special tomato every year until he passed away in 1984. His sisters carried on the tradition, however, they thought that the tomato was lost in 1993 when their saved seed was not properly dried. A search in 1995 revealed that two seeds remained, tucked away at the bottom of their seed tin. The deep red fruits have a tangy flavour, perfect for cooking or salads. Seed Guardian Eluned Paramor has grown them under glass, outdoors and in pots with equal success."
