Orange and Yellow Tomatoes 2017




Busy days are these. The transplanting is done, but the labels still need to be finished up and the preorders picked. We've gone through 10,000 labels now and working on more. It's a lot of plants.
Each label is handwritten, so when I am done in the greenhouse for the day, I clean up, eat supper and sit down to write out the labels. When you have so many varieties there just is no easy way. A glass of wine by my side can help though.
There are some outstanding varieties to look for that are yellow and orange. I am surprised when I fill the preorders that more people have not chosen "Florentine Beauty". Maybe I didn't talk it up enough when I described it, but it is wonderful. Beautifully ribbed, lemon yellow and wonderful sweet mild flavour. It produces so well and was one of my favourites last year. Watch for it at "Tomato Days", it is superb.
I do have the two hybrid cherries "Sungold" and "Sun Sugar", which could be known as "super sweet" and "super sweeter". What great tomatoes. You simply can't not eat them when you are fussing around in the garden. Other favourites of mine include Aladdin's Lamp, and some of the big oranges like KBX, Mahler Roth's Orange Brandywine and Myona. You just can't beat the flavour of a big orange tomato.

Hi Linda, is it necessary to pre-order or will ALL your varieties be available for cash & carry on tomato days? That's a lot of tomatoes!!

No-not necessary to preorder at all, the deadline has passed anyways. I have tons of plants and it is first come first served from here on in. I am sure we can help you find something you will really love.
