Possible GMO tomato marketed to home gardeners: Endless Summer

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Although the Endless Summer tomato (a genetically engineered one from a really long time ago) doesn't appear to have had success in grocery stores, it appears that Burpee has an Endless Summer tomato that remarkably has a similar shelf-life description (except it lasts even longer!) It's said t...read more

Some people think wonderberries are black nightshade, such as is seen on one of the posts in the following thread on another forum: https://www.homesteadingtoday.com/threads/anyone-ever-grow-wonderberry-plants.298177/ However, I've never found any evidence that they are black nightshade, othe...read more

I just wanted to permalink to this description of the Karma tomatoes that Marsha Eisenerg and Karen Olivier are working on: http://tomatoville.com/showpost.php?p=746921&postcount=1609 They sound like great early potato leaf tomatoes. Some are even bicolors (it's hard to find an early bico...read more

Worm in wonderberry

I found my first worm in a wonderberry (in all the three years I've grown it). It was late in the season. It appeared to be the same as the worms that get in over-ripe blackberries.

Bee in wonderberry flower

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I saw a bee dangling from a wonderberry flower (by its hands) for a really long time. I thought maybe it was pollinating it, but I waited, and waited, and it was still there. So, I attempted to help it out, and as soon as it saw me get close, it stopped and flew off. So, it wasn't stuck, it seem...read more

End of season tomato harvest, 2019

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Well, I harvested most of the tomatoes, ripe and unripe, with the exception of the damaged ones (there were lots of those). Usually we seem to have loads of tomatoes at the end, but we got lots throughout the season, and less at the end, this time. I thought the first freeze was going to be on W...read more

Better Boy F1 tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
A friend of mine gave me two Better Boy F1 tomatoes (I had never tried them before). The fruits were unexpectedly firm, but after cutting them open, I didn't feel like I was eating firm tomatoes. Anyway, the taste was excellent. I can see why people like it so much. Lots of tomato flavor. The...read more

A friend of mine gave me some Juliet F1 tomatoes, some from her garden, and some which had been refrigerated (which a friend had given her). Anyway, I tasted them and really liked them. They're quite sweet with nice flavor. I saved F2 seeds from most of the fruits. Unfortunately, I put the...read more

Fused wonderberries!

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I harvested wonderberries, today, and I found one with fused fruits! The fruit was comprised of three fruits stuck together into one fruit. I've been looking for unusual wonderberries for breeding purposes, such as to breed bigger wonderberries (that's one of the reasons I'm growing so many). I ...read more

End of season rain

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Good thing I harvested the ripe tomatoes earlier today, because it's raining, now! It often gets wet at the end of the season here. (It's supposed to freeze on Tuesday: read Wednesday morning.) There's nothing quite like harvesting tomatoes in the cold and rain.

Sweet Orange Cherry tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
Here are some Sweet Orange Cherry tomatoes that I harvested, today. They're nice. It's an early, prolific, hardy variety with good taste. It's somewhat larger than my Galapagos Island. I had it in tough soil, this year, unamended, unfertilized. I also grew it in 2017, and 2016. I gave my plant t...read more

Sausage tomato

The Sausage tomato is a favorite of mine. It produces large paste tomatoes in abundance. Sausage seems to be able to handle heat and drought well. Here's a picture that includes some of mine (they ripen red, but the picture makes them look pink). Some or all of these Sausage tomatoes might be...read more

Napoli tomato

This thread is for the Napoli tomato. It's a red paste (the picture makes it look pink) with similarities in production and fruit size to the Romas we grew in 2014. Due to its production, I want to grow it again. Offsite articles: • Tatiana's TOMATObase Vendors: • Timeless-Tomatoes....read more

This thread is for the Palestinian tomato. It's wispy, fairly large and apparently, a red oxheart. The picture makes it look pink, though. The bottom of the plant smelled super good, like awesome BBQ sauce. heirloom_tomato

Volunteer that came where the Holyland tomato died

The HL volunteer in the picture (the orange tomato) is the tomato at hand here. I transplanted a Holyland tomato there in the spring, but it died. Another tomato sprouted, which I thought might be Holyland. I let it grow, and it produced this orange fruit, which I believe ripened a super lon...read more

This thread is for the Sheboygan tomato. Here's a picture that includes some of its fruits. Note that everything in the picture looks pinker than it appears. Sheboygan is the only pink paste here. Gilbertie isn't fully ripe, but it's on its way from being orange-ish red to red. Holyland and Napo...read more

Brandy Boy F1 tomato

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, I tasted a Brandy Boy F1 tomato, today—a large, pink fruit. It had a taste similar to my Brandy Boy cross C plant's fruit, this year (the one that is almost a multiflora), but it's a little different. It was firmly attached to the vine much like my Brandy Boy cross F1 was in 2018; so, the...read more
