|Cherokee Purple tomato. I love the hairy stems and flowers, so interesting.|
|These might be Jersey Giant blossoms|
|Yoder's German Yellow cascade of tomato flowers|
|Brandywine tomato blossom|
|Might this be a Pruden's Purple tomato plant with its potato leaves?|
|The potato leaves of Pink Brandywine are so different than regular tomato leaves.|
We're planning on making lots of tomato sauce this year but it looks like Jersey Giant is the only paste tomato, I must have gotten San Marzano Lungo No. 2 mixed up with Ingegnoli Gigante Liscio.
The 6 black tomatoes we are trialing:
Black from Tula
Aunt Ruby’s German Green
Djena Lee’s Golden Girl
Golden King of Siberia
Yoder’s German Yellow – from a gardening buddy
Pink Berkley Tie-Dye
Ingegnoli Gigante Liscio
Jersey Giant paste tomato
And one cherry tomato:
Red Grape F1 hybrid
All the tomato plants have flowers on them except for little Pruden’s Purple, and even a few have opened up and blossomed like Cherokee Purple, Yoder’s German Yellow, and both Pink and Red Brandywines. It is just about time to get their trellises up.
And I noticed something wonderful today, the peppers are just starting to form flowers. Summer really is just around the corner.
