My biggies have only blossoms or tiny fruits so far - nothing compared to yours!

I’d love to be in Europe somewhere sampling fresh produce about now.

I'm taking a test batch to my local green grocer as an experiment. I'm not sure which price to ask.

I've given up on the idea of selling tomatoes. My local green grocer managed to sell four cups in four days. It looks like it's too exotic for my part of the town. They were selling it 1 dollar per cup, out of which I got 80 cents. Swiss chard was a success, as the five trial bunched I gave them sold in under an hour. By at 30 cents per bunch (20 for me) I'd rather give it away to friends and family.

Also, a cross-section of Ananas Noire and (a smaller) Chocolate Stripes.

Those tomatoes are just beautiful and would sell very quickly in my town. I'm sorry that the grocery did not work out so very well for you. It is hard to get people to change from eating a plain red store bought tomato but once they do they are forever changed.

I''ll likely reduce the number of plants next year, and plant something else. I'll freeze the excess I have now, I'll need it for the rice cooker. Putting a tomato with the rice is a revelation.

Wow, $1 for such beautiful tomatoes is a bargain! The price over here would be $4 or more.

Very beautiful. Too bad people don’t fully appreciate lovely produce like yours.

Freezing tomatoes, this was my first year doing that, is a wonderful option. I never knew how easy they freeze whole in their skins and how easy it is to peel them once partially thawed. The flavor of frozen ripe then thawed tomatoes is divine, far superior to any cooked canned tomato product I’ve had. Giving tomatoes away is great, but I’m going to freeze much more of my future crops.
