Whooooo, my tomatoes are coming on strong!
Cherokee Purples are almost there, just a day or two till the first ones are ripe.
Juliettes ..... more than I know what to do with. Made a great spread with roasted Juliettes, garlic, sweet spring onions, olive oil, s&p roasted till carmelized and coarsely mashed with a potato masher
Grapette ... super sweet and big yield so far
Carbon ... slowpoke but tons of green fruit
Principe Borghese ... great for drying no good otherwise. Dried some successfully in the oven at 200 for about six hours. Great flavor!
Persimmon Orange ... Very good flavor from the first one and loads more on the vine
Sungold ... bet taste of em all so far. Big tomato flavor in a tiny orange
Langley's Silver Tiger ... thick skin , but huge spicy flavor. A winner.
I have turned into a total tomato nerd.
