As of today, July 1st, here’s how my tomatoes are faring:
Black: not a very robust grower, fruit early to color up, severe cat-facing and some sun scald
Black from Tula: for an heirloom, very hearty vine, prolific, nicely-rounded fruit
Copia: at a disadvantage since I accidentally sliced off half its limbs… plant is smallish, fruiting is sparse… my fault? I wasn’t impressed with it last year either. Perhaps not a good choice for the Valley.
Costoluto Genovese: productive, attractive rippled fruit but individual fruits not very large, very healthy foliage
Early Girl: lots of uniform fruit, healthy foliage, not very early for me
Celebrity: compact plant, foliage looks ok, but not very full, lots of very uniformly round fruit
Sungold: still my fave cherry, earliest to fruit of all my plants
Sun Sugar: being grown as a hanging plant, early to fruit, sweet fruit but strange flavor undertones (my fault for allowing it to wilt a few times?)
Lemon Boy: R.I.P. (Great Snail Invasion of 2006)
Coming soon… how they taste!!!
