Tomatoes

It's tomato season. This is a Green Zebra tomato - it's fully ripe and was delicious! I"ve grown yellow tomatoes before and just didn't want to eat them as they looked wrong, but I am not put off the green ones.
Here's the Green Zebra showing its lovely stripes, along with a Red Pear and a Tigerella.
This Pink Cherokee is huge! It weighs 1 1/4 pounds (about 575 grams) and only just fits into my hand.

Impressive. With tomatoes that size only one slice needed per sandwich! :)

But it's still winter, she wailed.
Lovely, lovely!
I've grown tiny little yellow pear tomatoes that are extremely prolific and reseed like weeds. They are very yummy!

Mmm... Yummy!
I've already had yellow tomatoes, but never green ones. How do they taste?

You have a really green thumb. The green zebra is interesting.

Hi Shirley

I just popped in to say Hi when I saw your name in the comments of Two Lime Leaves.

You share your name with my aunt - I didn't know she was blogging, so thought I should check. You also have my maiden name. It's interesting isn't in this small world.

Hmm I'm longing for tomatoes in my garden. Ours suffered wilt this year in our heat in South Australia
