What a summer it has been. Cold then hot, hot then cold, little moisture, lots os smoke from the fires. It’s a wonder my stuff even grew. I did have record productivity though. Not sure why but I don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
I grew some new tomatoes this year along with the usual suspects.
My 2020 list:
San Marzano Redorta
Thorburn’s Terra Cotta
All of them did pretty well, I will try to share more later. My faves this year were Gold Medal, Greek Rose, Dester, Dagma’s Perfection and Lemon Boy. From those five varieties, I picked many that weighed well over a pound.
The Greek Rose reminded me of an oxheart, more meaty and less juicy with a fluted top.
Dester was a very late to ripen tomato but when they did, yummm! Very sweet and big.
Dagma’s Perfection was also a hit. Large and very sweet and very proflific.
The Gold Medal, which I have grown before was exceptional, sweet and golden with red marbling. I will certainly grow all of these in my garden agaiin.
Lemon Boy – we had a customer several years ago who grew nothing but Lemon Boys. I couldn’t figure out why and now that I’ve grown them, I understand why. Prolific and sweet. Tasty on a sandwich.
