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.  Posted by Hello

So that's what they would have looked like if they had ever grown!
