Harvested Speckled Roman (not Speckled Roman)

Today's harvest includes 75 Matt's Wild Cherry, 19 Husky Cherry Red(2), 14 SunGold(1), 8 Haley's Purple Comet, 5 Husky Cherry Red(1), 5 Garden Peach, 5 Coyote (not Coyote), 4 Green Zebra(2) (not Green Zebra), 3 Crimson Cushion(2) (6.5 ounces), 3 Sweet 100, 3 Persimmon (9 ounces, 12.5 ounces, 8 ounces), 2 Snow White, 2 SunSugar, 2 Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe, 2 Orange And Green Zebra, Speckled Roman (new) (not Speckled Roman), Green Zebra(1), Bloody Butcher, Golden Mama, Pineapple, Dr. Wyche's Yellow, Black Krim(1), Cassidy's Folly, Green Grape, Stupice and Oaxacan Jewel(2) for a total of 163 tomatoes.

Well, we harvested Speckled Roman...but it's not Speckled Roman. It's orange. The shape can pass for a Speckled Roman -- perhaps it's Banana Legs -- but it sure looks like the Persimmon we grow, named by the Tomato Lady of Beverly Hills. Strange. Looking on the Internet, Banana Legs is clearly yellow but the tomato I picked is orange in color. Whatever it is, it's not Speckled Roman.

We've now harvested over 6000 tomatoes for the year (6064)! And we've now harvested over 1000 tomatoes in the front yard for August. Based on the strength of the Matt's Wild Cherry harvest, our August numbers could be the best we've ever had. Stay tuned.

We've now harvested over 400 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes (417) and over 1500 Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes (1547).
