Project Tomato - It's Yummy

Category: Tomatoes | Posted: Sat Oct 25, 2014 2:26 am

Yesterday harvested a couple of the tomatoes for salad and it was sweet and yummy.

These fruits are from the heirloom plant no.2, they are larger then I expected about the size of the regular tomato that I planted last. The shape is a bit odd, looks like ... I don't know...

The heirloom plant no.2 is stunted maybe because of the heat but the hybrid plant no.3 is skinny and tall. No.2 have many fruits but no.3 have many flowers and only 2 fruits.

Fruits from the hybrid looks much more like cherry tomatoes but there is only two fruits even though there are lots of flowers.

How about plant no.1? OK, ok guilty as charged, digging it out to inspect for beetle grub is a VERY bad idea ... I'll kick myself in the butt. OUCH!!!

Well, I think that congratulations are in order here. You must be pretty pleased with those first salad toms.

Hopefully number three will eventuality catch-up. BTW-is tom number three the same type of tom as number two?
they look like two different habitus sorts.

Congratulations. You should be very proud.

Sorry to hear about plant no.1 KK. Interesting to see the differences between plant 2 and 3. I love following this!

Thank you Sjoerd, yes I am very pleased that once again I can get to enjoy tomatoes again.

I don't think number 3 can catch up, it is a hybrid and I think I got the negative part of it. Number 2 is a heirloom.

Thank you Donna, with the worm poo coming soon I hope to get more toms in future.

Thanks Frank, it is indeed a very stupid mistake on my part concerning plant no.1. I guess I learned it the hard way.

Do you intensively cultivate and shape the plants? Have you tried a control group study of plants allowed to grow as vines? I aim toward smaller varieties, as they mature more quickly than the average beastie is able to kill them. This year's larger varieties have forced much more policing on my part. I love the Juliets, as they ripen quickly and outsmart many pests. Just curious. From central Texas, amateur gardener. ~Robin
