My Rosada from last year self seeded and has lots of green tomatoes on it at the moment, quite curious to see if they are as nice as last years ones.

Tomatoes outside are coming on nicely now. If the Millefluer ones all ripen i am going to have to start making my own purees etc!
Sungold are as nice as last year, load of them planted this time round.
I saved a few seeds from tomatoes when on holiday last year in Portugal and to my surprise they are doing great now after a slow start with a few really nice fruit already ripened.
For me this year so far the big hit has been Latah, started producing ripened fruit outside a few weeks ago and while not as sweet as Sungold has a very nice taste indeed, will grow a bunch more of them next year.

I look forward to your reports, Sneachta, on how the self-seeded Rosada taste.

I'm also definitely going to give that Latah variety a go next year. They sound like a really early variety that's quite hardly (for a tomato) and fruits for quite a long time. Almost sounds too good to be true!!

Well Sneachta, how have your self seeded Rosada turned out? Have you got to taste many of them yet?

I was delighted with my "trug" two evenings ago when I went out and brought in a right harvest. I have nearly 5kgs. I used 3kg to make 5jars of sauce and I'll make more up in the coming days.

But i reckon I slipped up by sowing too many cherry varieties and not as many larger varieties that I can use for sauces/relish etc. Obviously it's a great complaint to have loads of cherries, not complaining on that front, but for next year I'll just grow some more big ones.

The cherry varieties in the pics are: (L-R)

Sweet Aperitif, Sungold, Rosada, Gardener's Delight, Black Cherry, Tumbling Tom Yellow and Maskotka

There's also San Marzano, Tigerella and Ailsa in the bowl...

Great pictures mcgrueser you had a bumper crop from the looks of it.
The self seeded Rosada turned out larger than the originals and were not as good tasting though perfectly fine for eating and cooking with all the same.

As usual the Sungold tomatoes were my favorites. The blackrussians were yukkie and I wont be planting them again. Millefluer were only ok tasting but are still producing loads of tomatoes.

Next year will be lots of Sungold, Rosada, Latah and Gardeners Delight i think.

Did anyone grow Tigeralla before?, i have a packet of them which i intended to plant this year but lost and then found it again to late.
