Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red and Vorlon -- Two Great Tasting Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 6 Pierce's Pride, 6 Black and Brown Boar, 5 SunSugar, 4 Husky Cherry Red(1), 3 Bloody Butcher, 3 Green Grape, 3 Black Cherry, 2 SunGold(1), 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 2 Golden Mama, 2 Matt's Wild Cherry, 2 Husky Cherry Red(2), 2 Stupice, 2 Vorlon, Green Zebra(1), Black Krim, Volunteer(1) and Lime Green Salad for a total of 48 tomatoes.

We tried Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red and Vorlon for breakfast this morning. Tomato slices were placed on a garlic bagel with mozzarella, butter, salt, pepper, olive oil and dried basil. Two thumbs up on both tomatoes! Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red has a bright flavor with a twang without being acidic. The bagel provided a base for the tomato. Vorlon had a smooth but delicious flavor. The tomato brought out the taste of the bagel. Both Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red and Vorlon get two thumbs up from us. I would definitely grow them again.

We tried our second Green Zebra(1) and it was fantastic. It doesn't work on a bagel (my wife tried it) as it has more of a citrus flavor. Still, it was a great tasting tomato.

Maturing tomatoes include Southern Night, Garden Peach and Large Pink Anna(1).
