First ripe tomato

The first ripe tomato of the season was picked this morning and quickly consumed. The winner is the Galina Tomato (yellow cherry type). The flavor was mild.

Second place goes to the Amateur's Dream. I picked the tomato even though it was not 100% ripe. If I was to guess, I would say that it was 85% ripe; red with no green areas although the red was not deep. I picked it because I am going out of town for a couple of days and I did not want to miss on the first red tomato of the season (really, my wife would just let it sit there, at the mercy of bug and bird!)

Sorry there are no pictures to go with this as I picked these early in the morning as I was rushing to go to work.

Over and out.


  1. So jelous...I noticed I have some tomatoes just starting out, Black Krim and Gold Nugget, both from West Coast seeds. The Roma have yet to make an appearance..

  2. I think the reason why I have tomatos is because all my Siberian tomatoes are of the "early" type. Today (June 21) I harvested some ripe tomatoes and peppers. Summer is suddenly here!
