It is with great pride I introduce to you the new set of cherry tomatoes for 2018. This week you will be receiving three varieties of cherry/grape tomatoes. I have an unabashed love for tomatoes and I would never grow a tomato that I am not proud of. I think you'll truly enjoy this year's crop. Let me briefly review the three tomatoes you will be receiving:
Valentine - Hybrid red grape tomato. This is a new variety that Johnny Seeds introduced this year. It was developed in collaboration with Dr. Majid Foolad of Penn State University. Valentine marries the best of wild-type tomato genetics with flavorful high-performing strains. A couple that didn't make it into the basket were enjoyed here at SRF.
Black Cherry - Heirloom large, dark color cherry. People who love a strong tomato taste love these. There are a lot of overtones in this variety and they are my favorite cherry.
Sun Gold - Hybrid yellow cherry. This tomato wins many contests due to its unusually high sweetness. Many people's summer is not complete until they have this nature's candy.
We also will be giving you eggplant this week. This variety is called Dancer and these violet-colored beauties put a smile on my face every time I walk by them in the high tunnel.
This week's shares will also have zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, string beans, peas, cabbage, Swiss chard, kale, beets, carrots, bell peppers, dill and basil.
We should be ready for pickup from 3:00 to 6:30 tomorrow.
Enjoy the summer,
