tomato flowers


By sandra


i’m amazed at the different flowers on our tomatoe plants.

this huge one is german red strawberry. it says it will have one pound fruits……

purple russian such a pretty flower. will produce purple plum shaped fruit.

this ones hillbilly potatoe leaf…big orange fruits.

elberta girl….strippy fruit

amish gold round and rich yellow fruit

my favorite so far is this one…brandy wine i think its more like a sunflower…lol

this is ildi small yellow tomatoes but hundreds and hundreds and so sweet.

micro tom… tis is one for a small pot on a window. produces grape size tomatoes but lots of them.

then there good old shirley i am enjoying all the unusual varieties but i like the solidness of the shirley.

hope you like the guided tour of our tomatoes. we have a small holding and hope to sell the fruit a t the local farmers market.

wonderful flowers don't you love all things tomatoes, you are lucky having a small holding, i have a small back garden but it produces enough for me and my husband, i am growing gardeners delight, black cherry, white currant, bejbino,garden pearl, orange banana, purple russian and sub-artic plenty. i hope for a good crop as they will all be grown in containers as i have got blight in the soil.

Hi Marge
my husband julian is growing them to sell both plants and fruit at the local farmers market . we normaly grow a few to feed ourselves but thought we'd give it a go...
i'm loveing the flowers and now the frruit is starting to set. but we started them off early in heat to try and get a head start.

i am enjoying learning about them and the plants sold well. just fingers crossed for the harvest...
