striped roman

Well here she is–our first tomato of the season. Well not counting the sungold cherry tomatoes. The first tomato from the big patch. Still not a slicer, but it looks kind of pretty no? It’s a striped roman.

Here how Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds describes it: “80-90 days. Stunning and unique. These long, pointed red fruit have wavy orange stripes! People were really excited about this one at our last Heirloom Garden Show. It’s a specialty grower’s dream; just what chefs and today’s buyers are looking for; a perfect midsized beauty with brilliant color, meaty flesh and excellent flavor. This variety was developed by John Swenson.”

One of the Paul Robeson’s is starting to turn color. The rest still seem pretty green!
