This year all tomatoes I put in were kindly provided to me, via the supply of seed by Yvonne. Her choices so far with the Jaune Flamme and Purple Cherokee have been spot on. These varieties have had great flavour and juiciness.
Now I can't wait till some of the others ripen.
The first Speckled Romans wont be far off now. One is already turning and others are developing their characteristic stripes. Why aren't they called Striped Romans?
I am also waiting on the Green Grapes to ripen. This plant is the sole survivor of the frost snap in late October. I had several more in but alas they were burnt off. It's sometimes hard to know when a green variety is ripe isn't it? Other than a by giving them a little squeeze? Does anyone have a technique or tip?
I am growing other small varieties. I am also growing a Yellow Pear and a Red Pear. The plant below is the Red Pear ripening up
The other varieties I am growing, again , all thanks to Yvonne's generous supply of seeds are, Peach - it has a nice squat shape...
Oxheart Yellow, and
Verna Orange (which has a little bit of a Blossom-end rot problem - see the fruit's flat bottom?).
Here are more Purple Cherokee on the way!
I am really looking forward to my tomato glut. Happy Tomatoeing everyone!
