The Haul is Starting

Mid-September and the tomatoes are finally starting to come in ...... Unfortunately a good portion of my larger tomatoes have suffered gray mold this year; a most devasting disease that I have only encountered one other year. I'll post a few pics shortly, just to show the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Anyhoo, the good for now - here are fruits from the four plants of the Sungold x Mom's F1 - a nice diverse selection - from left to right: Plant 2, Plant 1, Plant 3, Plant 4. So it appears we have gold, pink and red from this cross. Taste test results to follow. I'm hoping the large pink cherry will be up there in taste - if yes I think we have something worth growing out next year!! All are decent croppers for cherry types - but as you can see Plant 3 is somewhat later in ripening.
