Tomatoes, First Harvest..

Image

Caro Rich… very juicy and meaty, has a mild flavor..

As it’s an early variety it matures in 50-60 days after transplant

its a heavy produce compared to other varieties I’ve grown.

Some Tomatoes had cracks though the packet from Annadana says it’s crack resistant, another issue was blossom-end rot one plant fell victim to that had to remove those tomatoes early, but none had curly leave virus issues 🙂

NFT Tomatoes – Fruiting

Just want to share some pictures of the NFT tomato setup which has started to set fruits..

It’s a determinate variety so I’ve not pruned the plants, just removed some suckers from the bottom.. Seeds were brought from Annadana, cultivar name Meghali
