If you're growing in exotic tomatoes this Coming season please share the type you have decided to grow
This is the exotic tomatoes I've decided to start in the next two weeks >>
Organic Black Krim tomatoes
Black krim makes its way to us from the Isle of Krim in the Black Sea off the coast of the Crimean Peninsula.
Black krim produces beefsteak tomatoes that are 4' long by 5 1/2" wide. Deeply mahogany colored, slighlty flattened with green gel coats.
As for taste...I think Amy Goldman in her book The Heirloom Tomato says it best..."The flavor is exotic and musky; the fruit acid hits me in the roof of my mouth and tickles my tongue. Others describe Black Krim as very intense, smoky or salty."
Ferris Wheel tomato
Ferris Wheel tomato originated in Wisconsin at the turn of the 19th century from Salzer Seeds.
"Ferris Wheel" was named "in honor of one of the greatest inventions of the age".
Ferris Wheel is a pink Beefsteak variety with a luscious velvety flavor and fruit that is touted to grow up to 5 pounds.
We generally get tomatoes in the weight of one pound or bigger, but are still waiting for that monster 5# pounder
Regardless, this is a big beefsteak toamto that will cover a sandwich with one slice.
Remember Ferris Wheel will need staking to hold up those big tomatoes!
Organic Tomatillo Grande Rio
This var. produces the most and the largest tomatillos!
Grande yields about a 3 oz green tomatillos.
Great for salsa verde!
