My First Taste of Black Sea Man
This year I planted 7 different varieties of tomatoes. I chose them by the description on the tag with a mix of hybrid and heirloom types. They were all organically grown in the same 8'x4' raised bed and received equal attention, staking, pruning, water and organic fertilizer. The best of the bunch has been the Black Sea Man. Amazing flavor, visually appealing, consistantly large round with no dimples or lobes, and very prolific. The losers this year were:
Beefstake: Large, red, average storebought taste.
Beefmaster: Same as aobve.
Monkey's Bum: The plant produced nothing, zippo, zilch so I can't really judge it.
Black Prince: Produced 1 tomato then sriveled up and died.
Amish Paste: Red plum with average taste. Prolific but fruit got smaller and smaller as the plant aged.
Neves Azorean Red: Large plant, prolific, red deformed lobed fruit. The plant is loaded with fruit but none have ripened yet.
