The Germans, Black from Tula, and Black Cherry were without question the most productive. Nonstop blooming and ripening from mid June continuing into August.
|You just can't beat the shape, color, and flavor of heirloom tomatoes.|
What about size? I harvested three tomatoes over 2.5-pounds, and one German Giant was just 3-ounces shy of the 3-pound mark! I saved seeds from these monsters and I'm already looking forward to planting them next spring.

Enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed the tomatoes.
