It's true Jim... Most are either too young or senile to remember Jay Sherman.
It's been about two months since I started the thread, posted a picture. Want an update? Tuff I'm going to do it anyway!
First pic is what they looked like yesterday afternoon.
All six plants are 6 to 8 foot tall.
Second pic is a Cherokee Purple that weighs in just over a pound.
Now a review....
Ripe and ready to eat first, as expected.Not bad but nothing to rave about.
Anticipation factor annoying, but well worth the wait. Excellent flavor.
Holly smokes this is a great little tomato, smaller than an Early Girl but so much better. Bet that I have eaten 30 of these and another 15 that others got to eat, very productive. Started getting ripe ones a few days after the Early Girls
Jury is still out... Only ones that have had a butt blight problem and hit or miss flavor.
Kind of big Early Girls. Getting lots of tomatoes.
Longest wait, even more than the two week delay putting it into the ground. But likely the best flavor of them all.
