Main Season Tomatoes

A main season tomato is the one you get in the dead of summer, somewhere around 70 - 84 days or more. Some can be heirlooms and some are hybrids. Perfect for salads and hamburgers.  rMountain Fresh Plus (can be grown in a large pot) and Delicious are fabulous tomatoes with good flavor and lovely juicy flesh. Mister E is a tomato we saved out of a Big Zac which is a hybrid. Because of this, we knew we wouldn’t get a Big Zac, instead we developed a really nice, large pink tomato, one slice per sandwich. Yummm.  Last year we had a Jetstar, it was wonderful and sweet, consistnt size and I wondered why we waited so long to try it..

Remember that  ripening times are  from the time of transplanting into the garden.
