|Tomato - Consteluto Fiorentino|
Friday, 19 August 2011
For me the tomato season is nearly over. I sowed four different types; Gardeners' Delight, Tigerella, Consteluto Fiorentino and Sungold. The Sungold were planted outside and are a vigorous cherry type, and in my mind, the best-tasting tomato of all. They are still going strong, despite the cold and windy weather. The Gardeners' Delight ripened very quickly in the greenhouse and have now finished. Can't quite believe I won't be picking any more. I have frozen a good few kilos ready to make sauces and soups for the winter. The Tigerella which are a medium sized tomato with paler stripes are just about hanging on with a few more to ripen and the Consteluto, which are a beefsteak type have finished completely. I know other people who are still waiting for their tomatoes to ripen, so I can't quite understand why mine have come and gone so quickly. I shall miss going into the greenhouse and picking fruit warm from the vine and feasting on them straightaway. Guess I will just have to wait till next year now.
