C. Jones, Enchantment, Snow White (back yard), Berkeley Tie-Dye Heart, Dr. Wyche's Yellow(2), Dr. Wyche's Yellow(1) (7.5 ounces), Sweet Tangerine, Principe Borghese, Carmello, Poma Amoris Minora Lutea, Japanese Black Trifele, Garden Peach, Miss Elliotte Black, Persimmon and Aunt Ruby's German Green(2) (new) for a total of 86 tomatoes.

It's good to see the second Aunt Ruby's German Green tomato plant finally get a ripe tomato! At one point the plant was a good four and a half feet tall, green, healthy...with no tomatoes. Finally it got a tomato but it seemed to be maturing very slowly, so slowly that I stopped looking at the plant. At some point this tomato took off and was harvested today, coming in at just under six ounces. There are more tomatoes growing on this plant.
