Harvested Four New Tomatoes!

Today's harvest includes 8 SunSugar, 7 Matt's Wild Cherry, 5 SunGold(1), 3 Black Cherry, 2 Green Doctor's Kiwi(2) (new), 2 Husky Cherry Red(1), 2 Husky Cherry Red(2), 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 2 Black and Brown Boar, 2 Black Krim(2), 2 Stupice, 2 Green Grape, 2 Indian Stripe, Green Zebra(1) (new), Black Seaman(2) (new), Clint Eastwood's Rowdy Red (6 ounces) (new), Vorlon (7 ounces), Honkin' Big Black Cherry, Japanese Black Trifele, Pierce's Pride and Volunteer(1) for a total of 49 tomatoes.

I forgot to mention that Green Doctor's Kiwi(2) was maturing. But Green Zebra(1) was a surprise. I noticed it last night and harvested this morning.

My wife and I tried Black and Brown Boar last night. It wasn't as full of flavor as we're used to from a Wild Boar Farms tomato. My wife described it as a bit soapy and I have to agree. We'll try other ones just to be sure -- perhaps this particular tomato was a little overripe. It is (was) a beautiful looking tomato.

The maturing tomatoes on Oaxacan Jewel(1) may never be harvested. The plant looks bad from leaf curl. The few maturing tomatoes are ripe in the shoulders with a green underside -- the opposite of how a tomato usually ripens. Also they're quite tiny.

I harvested a Patio today. But the tomato was malformed with too big a hole in it. I threw it out.

I believe a Green Zebra(2) is maturing.
