After a very slow start this year things are gradually improving. These are an old variety of tomato grown by the Amish, ripening to gold rather than red.Uploaded Image

Blackbird's Avatar Very yummy looking tomatoes, Lily! Enjoy themVery Happy I love the heirloom varieties too but I must say that I'm a bit skeptical of the stripey green ones. Too many green tomatoes in our Pacific NW.

Westerwitch's Avatar I have never ever eaten a golden tomato - I am reading that they taste nice, but my brain is going yuk they don't look ripe bet they taste horrible - conditioned I am.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar A bit like most old varieties, we're so conditioned to modern ones the old ones look scabby and horrible but taste SOOOOO much betterVery Happy
