Tomato Garden Update

Funwithfood | Aug 12, 2004 01:04 PM

I have finally tasted all the tomatoes I grew--review below.

Note: Last night I harvested 40 pounds of tomatoes (25 lbs. from *one* Dona plant!) to make my roasted tomato rosemary bisque--took quite a while to roast & process!

Tomato Reviews:

*Dona: Always a favorite! One plant produced more than all my other plants combined! Good all-around yummy tomato. (my all time fav!)

*Pineapple: Wow, what an amazing flavor and beautiful colors--orange, yellow, and red inside. Hard to find a more perfect tomato. (got only 7, but they were huge)

*San Marzano Plum: Good, classic, rich, nice production.

*Garden Peach: Small, yellow-peach colored with a nice sweet flavor and enough acid to make it just right. Great production.

*Yellow Branywine: Huge, orange, pretty, but too acidic for my taste. (again only got around 7)

*Siletz: Nice small tomato with a good flavor. Not memorable compared to my other plants. Moderate production.

*Mikes Wild Cherry: Wow! Cherry red, very small, sweet, with a HUGE production. They are presently growing over several other tomato plants. I will definitely grow this again!

*Sun Gold: Large cherry, very sweet, beautiful, high production. I will grow this one again!
