When I was out in the garden the other day I was struck not only by how pretty the tomatoes are, but also by the differences in how each variety is formed. I thought it would be fun to share them all with you!
This Big Beef is almost ready to harvest!
Yellow Pear tomatoes. I love the way these ones look.
Japanese Black Trifele. These heirloom tomatoes will be deep blackish purple when they are ripe.
Basket Pac. These look like they will be cherry tomatoes.
Brandywine, another heirloom variety:
Cherokee Purple (also an heirloom variety). The description says “dusty pink outside, purple-green inside”. But the picture of the outside looks pretty purple to me.
Early Girl Hybrid:
Supersweet 100. This plant is covered in very prolific branches of cherry-sized tomatoes!
Mr. Stripey. Another heirloom, this one will be red and yellow striped when ripe.
Some sort of larger cherry-type tomato:
San Marzano. This is my first time growing these and I am excited to try them!
Sun Gold Hybrid. I grew these orange cherry tomatoes last year and they are so good! The one furthest to the right was harvested and eaten minutes after this photo was taken.
A tasty treat!
