Cherokee Purple  (always a fave, makes the best BLT’s)

Old German (it takes one to know one)

Green Zebra

Japanese Trefele


Rutgers  (I’m in Jersey, of course I’m going to have this one)

Super Marzano

San Marzano Gigante 3  (I’m wondering what happened to 1 & 2)

Amish Paste

Orange Paruche

Chocolate Cherry

Sweet 100

Just got a great tomate at the farmer’s market – yellow sausage. It’s a plum shape with a thick skin and that dense plum flesh but sweet sweet sweet. Yellow with green stripes but turns orange when ready to eat. The gal explaining it to the lady next to me did such a good job that we both bought some!
