Hello- Tomatoes are finally ripening. We grow several open-pollinated determinate varieties specifically for canning or preserving purposes. Averaging 2″-3.5″ in diameter, not too large in size. Thick walled and meaty, our tomatoes are field grown and sun ripened on the vine for flavor. No cracks. Unsprayed, no use of petro based synthetic fertilizers, and untreated (not coated in wax or oil).
We are also growing several open-pollinated indeterminate varieties of tomatoes which are larger in size and good for slicing, and Red Cherry and Yellow Pear Tomatoes in smaller quantities.
Melons are just starting up… three varieties this year. The melon pictured below is called ‘Charentias’, a French heirloom cantaloupe that originated in the Poitou-Charentes region, circa 1920. It’s bright orange flesh is very sweet with a heavenly floral fragrance.
