This year's Tomatoes

Akitist | Aug 11, 2011 12:22 PM

Just a little info on what we grew this year. Three plants, Momotaro, Black Krim and Neves Azorean. The Krim was the earliest to ripen by quite a bit, flavor was good if understated. Heavily lobed fruit, dark maroonish-brown with green shoulders. Momotaro came next, dark pink, fairly regular billiard-ball sized fruit, very mild flavor. Way later was the Neves, by far the flavor champ, really intense but balanced flavor. Fruit was quite red, really various in size, and irregularly lobed.

If we were to do these varieties again, I'd drop the Momotaro and go with the Krim for its earliness and the Neves for flavor. But there are so many varieties to try.....

San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles if that makes a difference.
