I grew tomatoes from seed for the first time, and planted outdoor to boot. I had a bumper crop but was hit by late blight.
The flavour was a bit disappointing. I’d say 15% better than shop bought, but not anything super exciting.
The exception was one plant, which my three year old picked out at the garden centre as a small plant. It had orange fruit rather than red, and the flavour was like a punch in the mouth. Sweet, juice, a bit of citrus sour. They were amazing.
I saved some seeds, but the plant was low yielding and the fruit small. However, it has has given me an idea of what is possible.
So, help me find seeds for next year. I’m keen to try a few varieties and care about flavour above all. What is your taste explosion?
