Yes, Tutter, I pick almost all of my varieties when 'red'/ripe. Unless, I want fried green tomatoes. I'm the only one in my household who eats them, so I don't do it too often. IME, tomatoes have different flavor at different levels of ripeness. I love a pink brandywine when it's kind of overripe.Tutter said:OaklandCityFarmer, unless they are a tricky variety, do you pick them when red (I take that to mean, ripe, vs. green, since not all of my toatoes turn red. I've got yellow pears all over the plants currently.) when you are going to eat them fresh for, say, dinner, or process them for sauce/paste?
Ah yes, the method. We should compare notes one day about outcomes of bio-intensive gardening.Tutter said:Okay, I just wanted to double check, as I thought something else was being said.
Mostly French-Biointensive, with containers up by the house.
I love them, also, and can't wait for them to be ready to pick, which won't be long. I've never thought of comparing them to popcorn, but I do love them; just about any tomato, actually!
I have a niece who is 19, and won't eat tomatoes. I told my sister that she couldn't possibly be related to me! lol! :coolsun
