Well, I harvested the first ripe Trucker's Favorite tomato yesterday (Thursday). I ate and seeded it, today. It tasted a lot like an apricot! Same sweetness as an apricot, too.

By the look of the fruit, the plant probably needed more potassium. Also, the plant is fairly small, and doesn't have lots of fruits. I should add potassium to that soil. Tomatoes have struggled there in the past, but I figured it was the light or the nearby blackcurrant bushes.
