Sheboygan tomato

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 Napoli are very much red. Sausage is red with at least one being orange-ish red.

The taste is astonishingly good! Definitely a favorite, and not just for the year. Also remember that the plant has eastern shade. It's similar to Polish Linguisa in flavor and texture. The taste is a bit different. If you like the taste/texture of one I imagine you'll like the other. Sheboygan seems more prolific, however.

Here's the largest Sheboygan tomato I got. It's not ripe, yet, but intend to save seeds from it when it does ripen. This one is an oxheart!



Here are the rest of them that I harvested green (in preparation for the fall/winter):

The oxheart-shape one ripened. I took the seeds out to save (they're in a jar of water waiting to be zapped; I still need to add another pack of watermelon seeds to the jar first). I ate the remainder of the fruit with my dinner (some burritos; I ate watermelon previous to the burritos). The taste was good.

It shriveled some near the stem-end. I'm not sure what causes that, but it's not cracked at the stem-end as the vine-ripened ones were. The fruit was entirely good, though (no bad parts). The taste was good, too, but the vine-ripened ones tasted even better. The seeds were smaller than those of the average tomato.

If it produces offspring with consistent oxheart-shaped fruits, I may give it a name (perhaps Sheboygan Oxheart).

Here are the pictures of it:

Here's my Sheboygan tomato plant from the oxheart-shaped fruit, this year. Note that the plant is very noticeably wispy, this year (whether or not it is in the picture). I don't recall it being particularly wispy in 2019. Oxhearts tend to be wispy. I wonder if Sheboygan is supposed to be wispy. This picture was taken on 27 May 2020.

Sheboygan tomato plant from a seed from an oxheart-shaped fruit, among regular ones. This plant is wispy.
