The Mighty Tomato
Along the same vein of thought as my last post (where I requested your thoughts on some unusual varieties you have grown), I'd also love your input on tomatoes.
We all know it has to be the #1 most important crop in almost everyone's Home garden but sometimes some of them just don't stand up to all the hype, at least that what I believe.
So once again, give us an idea of your best tasting or maybe the most prolific variety you've ever grown. If possible let us know whether it was a determinate or indeterminate variety (sometimes I love to stagger planting of determinate varieties. They take up so much less space and if you stagger your plantings you still get a continuous harvest).
Just as an example, last year a lady from North Carolina sent me some seeds from her family's unusual favorite. It was called Wapsipinicon Peach Tomato ( I later found the seeds are available from High Mowing Seeds). It is a yellow tomato variety but as they mature they take on a slight peach blush coloring. The flavor was also excellent.
So what types or varieties are yours (your family) favorites?
I always do all my planning and shopping during the next few months during winter (for my area)
for the next growing season so I'd love to get some suggestions from you.
