Re: Re: Tomatoes

It may be the same thing, or close to it, Auralie. This is an open pollinated tomato. I got it years ago from Johnny's. They said it was originally from Hidalgo, Mexico. Most important about this, I think, is that it grows in Maine, so it ought to grow anywhere, given that it grows here in Z10.

Jim, how do these compare with those I used to get from Park's called
"Spoon Tomatoes?"  Those were not much bigger than a pea, but very
tasty and productive. I grew them for years, and once in a while they
would reseed if the winter wasn't extreme.  Then about three years ago
Park's dropped them, and I have not been able to locate them anywhere
else. The winters have been severe, and I haven't had a volunteer in that
time either.  It seems that every year or so I lose another of my old
standard varieties of something. Of course I like to try new things, but
when I know something is reliable and good, I don't need to replace it
with a new variety just for the sake of variety.

Wee small, Jesse. The size of a marble. But they're borne in clusters
of 6 to 8, so easy to pick--three clusters is sufficient for a salad or
cold pasta dressing.
