Okay. Preliminary taste test results:
Matt's Wild Cherry: This is a cross between a currant tomato and a cherry tomato. The tomatoes are red, about ring-fingernail size, and grow in clusters. Good points: Intense tomato taste -- sweet, but with character. Bad points: They ripen one by one, so unless you had a row of about 20 plants you'd scarcely harvest a handful a day. They're definitely a snackin' tomato.
Amish Paste These are, despite the name, not really paste-type tomatoes. They're heart-shaped; juicy; have a real summertime-tomato flavor. Very good.
Sausage This variety has had the richest flavor so far -- good sweet/tart balance, almost a spicy aftertaste, very meaty interior. I'm looking forward to eating the rest of these!
Italian Climbing These tomatoes have been my big disappointment. The plants grow like gangbusters and are covered with sprays of oblong tomatoes...but the tomatoes themselves are tough and bland; nothing special.
Red Calabash Another disappointment; small, bland and mealy inside. They're a pretty tomato, though -- they're squat and somewhat ruffled, like a French pumpkin. They're nothing like the Purple Calabash tomatoes that I grew a couple of years ago, that really were the best tomatoes I have ever tasted.
More varieties to come...stay tuned!
