This is Mr. Snow in the wild.

This is Mr. Snow on a cutting board about to be devoured.

One of the Dwarf Tomato Project varieties that I tried this year. It is astoundingly sweet. They are medium size, measuring about 3 inches across, as with most heirlooms, the size can vary widely.

It sits in a very large pot near my arbor and is doing well in spite of the heat. And the shade. However, it isn’t getting as much light as it would like and is producing, albeit not heavily. It takes a lot of energy to produce fruit. As my trees grow in my yard I am realizing that what was once full sun is no longer. I’d like to see how it performs in the ground out in the garden where it will get full sun.

I was surprised at how juicy and sweet this one tastes. The color is charming, a very light yellow. It would look pretty in a salsa or in a mixed color tomato salad plate as shown here. Well, it’s really a cutting board, with cucumbers from my garden (Beth Alpha) but you get the gist.

The other two tomatoes are Fred’s Tye Dye and Tye Dye which I will showcase in a future post.

  1. This is a new one for me to consider for next year’s garden. My Kellogg Breakfast tomato plant is producing delicious bright orange fruits, most of which are extremely large. It has not produced as heavily as I had hoped, but that may be because of the extreme heat this summer. The Bullsheart plants I grew are very heavy producers, however, and I am busy making kettle after kettle of tomato sauce these days. Are Bullsheart considered to be paste tomatoes?

    • they are an oxheart type. They are higher in solids, less seeds and are simialr to paste. Not sure what the actual difference is. I use them all to make canned tomatoes.

      • Thanks for information. They were by far the heartiest of all the plants I began from seed and are prolific producers. I have so many slicing options, that I haven’t tried slicing a Bullsheart yet. The Kellogg Breakfast plant I got from you has been steadily producing enormous tomatoes, and my husband loves them sliced.
