the start of tomato sauce (with cherry tomatoes) can't let them go to waste!

Indian Stripe:


Shared this one in a previous thread, but I like it so much!

Cherokee Green
I'm not recalling what this one is -

This is the love apple sliced... LOVE IT! Talk about porn baby!


This year, I'm most impressed with the taste of Cherokee Green and Indian Stripe (IS also with production - lots of beautiful tomatoes!)- BUT I just got a few LATE varieties that are starting to turn - and looking foward to trying those!

Anyone else?

Very nice! How long did it take to skin those cherries?


RE: Tomato Picture for Tomato people

My gosh, how beautiful! You've inspired me to plant more heirlooms!!!! Did you grow these in the ground or in pots? Also, what was the name of the cherries?

I LOVE the Apple Tomato. Is it yummy?

RE: Tomato Picture for Tomato people

The cherries really aren't that bad to skin - just pop them
into the water, take them out and then pinch them after
they've cooled. They slide right out of their skin.
They really aren't THAT bad.

I have a raised bed that I fit about 20 plants in - and another
plot along a fence that I fit an addition 20 plants in. I have
issues with sun (or not enough) - I throw tomatoes in where ever I get enough
sun. The cherries are: Sungold, Isis Candy, Dr. Carolyn, Green Grape,
and Black Cherry. I was most impressed by Sungold.
The size is PERFECT for popping - the others are larger cherries.
Although they're so prolific - cherries - I couldn't eat them
all, so thats why I was making sauce out of them! :)

My father used to tell as story about me mixing up the plants
as a kid and my grandparents recieving plants that were all
cherries and they were making sauce out of them. He used to
think that was pretty funny... I think he mixed them up
and relished the thought of my grandmother skinning the little
suckers... but I digress. I didn't find it all that daunting.

As for the love apple - I've cataloged my seeds this year and
looked up the tomato - the only tomato that little love
could be is Ananas Noire (thanks to Jeff W). And Trudy, it's fabulous!
I like the taste, and I like the color - very different,
but the texture is just so wonderful - soft
but not squishy - and smooth inside the locules... It
really is a LOVELY tomato. Recommend it!I have
been having so much fun with my tomatoes this year... and
it's not like I haven't grown a lot of varieties in the past,
but being able to document (I'm finally in the digital age)
and share my experiences of tomatoes has just been the greatest
Here's a few pictures of Ananas Noire cut up:
Here's another pic of Ananas Noire:

I've been impressed with it.

I too think is is Ananas Noire. MIne looks just like that. Isn't it the most beautiful thing? I took a bunch to work and everyone oohed and aahed about it, about the flavor also. My FAVORITE!
