Tomato Report

As of today, July 1st, here's how my tomatoes are faring:

Black: not a very robust grower, fruit early to color up, severe cat-facing and some sun scald

Black from Tula: for an heirloom, very hearty vine, prolific, nicely-rounded fruit

Copia: at a disadvantage since I accidentally sliced off half its limbs... plant is smallish, fruiting is sparse... my fault? I wasn't impressed with it last year either. Perhaps not a good choice for the Valley.

Costoluto Genovese: productive, attractive rippled fruit but individual fruits not very large, very healthy foliage

Early Girl: lots of uniform fruit, healthy foliage, not very early for me

Celebrity: compact plant, foliage looks ok, but not very full, lots of very uniformly round fruit

Sungold: still my fave cherry, earliest to fruit of all my plants

Sun Sugar: being grown as a hanging plant, early to fruit, sweet fruit but strange flavor undertones (my fault for allowing it to wilt a few times?)

Lemon Boy: R.I.P. (Great Snail Invasion of 2006)

Coming soon... how they taste!!!
