Our San Marzano are going nuts as per normal, and they’ll always be in the mix here. Early Girl is producing like a cherry tomato! So far Black Krim is just a slow poke, while Big Beef is kicking them out at a pretty good pace. NAR & BW are about average production wise. But the one that has my attention is that Romeo… I mentioned above that the jury was still out as far as the taste goes for us, but we cut the big one last night and she even put some chunks in our cottage cheese. I was impressed! I was looking forward to a bland nothingness, but it was actually pretty darn good.
Wish I’d have taken a shot of it sliced, but I cut up another one today just working up some toms for freezing. Plus I was wanting more seeds to save, the first one hardly had any!
Not a lot more on the 2nd one.
Here’s a picture of 5 of the “smaller” ones on a plate, plus the insides of one I cut into. The lighter orange skin hides a darker pink/red meat.
But I commented to my wife that if someone just walked in and saw the plate they might mistake it for watermelon
So far my wife is exceedingly impressed with the “meatiness” of this paste tomato, and how quickly they fill the freezer bags, that she’s already making sure I have a spot for them next year.
But again, we need to do some cooking to make sure we like the cooked up flavor, but out of the gate it’s looking good!
