Lincoln-Adams Tomato? Whats your fav tom??
Helenh and anyone with suggestions:
I'm participating in a tomato swap and am supposed to give a list of varieties I'd like to receive back.
Last year was my first time to do strictly heirlooms so I dont have a huge knowledge.
I'm looking at the other participants trade lists to get ideas of what might be sent in for the swap and researching those varieties.
I did a search on the Lincoln-Adams tomato and noticed you had asked about it last year. Did you end up growing it and if so, what did you think of it?
So many of the sites that are selling use terms like 'excellent flavor' 'exceptional', etc but dont actually tell what the flavor is like.
I prefer a zesty, more acidic tasting tomato whereas DH perfers a sweeter one.
Last year I grew every variety that had been sent to me...30 in all. Some I wont grow again, some I was pleasantly with. I found 2 new favorites:
Jaune Flamme-small egg sized, bright orange color, very prolific and great zesty flavor.
Black Russian Truffle-pear shaped, dark mahogany with green shoulders, produced well, the best tasting 'black' tomato I've found (nice balance of sweet and zesty).
What are your favorite tomato varieties?
What would you not bother growing again?
