Huge tomatoes

I know, I know, enough with the tomatoes already, but look.
That's a quart jar. I just love these tomatoes. I only wish I knew what they were called. I looked online to see if I could find out and learned that there are quite a few different kinds of really large paste tomatoes. Why have I been growing regular Romas all these years? It makes it hard to want to grow regular Romas anymore when I can grow these ones.

Sandi, I did save some seeds for you and some of the Franchi ones too.

Oh...I am green with envy! My measly little tomato plants got quite the shock when it frosted over Labour Day week-end! Guess we will be investing in a greenhouse if we have any hope at all of getting such beautiful tomatoes!!

They're perfect! I would love to have a garden full of these beauties, Heather. Did you think they'd like the prairie weather?

Hi Joanne - I frosted over labour day week-end too up there in your area too. :-)

I'm not sure about growing tomatoes on the prairies, K. I bet M-S would know. You could certainly try though, I'll give you some seeds if you like.
