And it was YUMMY!
The Black Krim tomatoes seem to be the earliest to mature but are surprisingly the biggest out of the different varieties I started. The one I had tonight was nearly 1 lb! I pulled it off the vine the other day and let it sit in the window and have been waiting & waiting for it to be ripe. I've never grown these before so I wasn't entirely sure when it was really & truly ripe but thought I'd give it a try tonight.
When ripe, they are a dark reddish, brownish, purplish color with some green streaks. When you cut it open it's a deep red with green seeds. Very flavorful and juicy!
But do you know what I forgot to do? Take a picture of it to share. I will with the next ripe one! Should be another few days till the next is ready.
I have a feeling the other varieties are going to ALL be ripe at the same time and I'm going to have a deluge of tomatoes.
I can't wait for fresh tomatoes in salad, or for snacks, sandwiches and in pasta. Hmm perhaps some brushetta and fresh salsa?
Any other good ideas or recipes for tomatoes? What's your favorite thing to do with yours?
