First Ripe Tomatoes of the Season
The first ripe tomatoes of the season, picked last night. They're a variety called "Mr. Stripey," but also called "Tigerella" because there is another variety also called Mr. Stripey which is a totally different tomato.
Anyway, these were nice. Not much bigger than a cherry tomato in size, but they pack a nice tart punch which I like.
It has been my latest ripening year ever, here in the Minnesota 'Burbland. An unusually cool and wet summer has kept everything a bit behind. But all the plants are really loading up, so when the season really kicks in, it should be awesome.
