|Ripe tomatoes can sometimes be hard to find.|
I knew this tomato was there, and had been looking for it under the bush for quite a while – and finally I found it!
|The only hybrid in my garden - Celebrity|
Each year I compare heirloom tomato varieties to the one variety I continually strive to beat – Celebrity. So far, Celebrity is winning. Most everything in my garden is open pollinated and can outdo its hybrid counterpart – but I have a long way to go to beat this hybrid tomato variety.
I too am trying some other tomatoes to see what will grow best in my climate and conditions....that tomato is yummy. I won't see a tomato for about 2 or 3 months.ReplyDelete
Hi Jay, nice tomato. I hope my Siletz, Neptune and Hahms Gelbe will be as beautiful as your Celebrity.ReplyDelete
Me too. You'll have to send me pictures! (=
Wow, how early! Very impressive!ReplyDelete
That is awesome! Did it taste as good as it looks?ReplyDelete
A fresh home-grown tomato beats the store any day - but I would not compare the taste of Celebrity to a pink Bradywine. That being said, the only way to grow Brandywine here is under partial shade or shadecloth.
