We tasted in groups of 3, 4, 5, or 6 tomatoes. Appropriate pictures will follow each group. We cleaned our palates with wedges of either Diva or Salt and Pepper cukes. Pretty effective!
Scores on 10 point scale - Lee's score first, then Craig. Our palates are pretty well aligned, it seems.
Afterward - from a customer: Chocolate Lightning (no pic)- 4 ounce brown fruit with green stripes - very attractive (she also brought over a 4 oz oblate purple Boronia 3097). Flavor was just fine - 7.5.
For me.....favorite tomatoes of the entire tasting - Summertime Green, Rosella Purple, Sweet Sue, Blazing Beauty, Mr Snow green fruit, Perth Pride, Maralinga, Tasty Brown (purple fruit), Uluru Ochre and similarly colored Rosy F3, Coorong Pink. And of these, Summertime Green and Rosella Purple are being sold, Sweet Sue and Perth Pride are on tap to release next season, and Blazing Beauty, Uluru Ochre and Coorong Pink will be prioritized so we can get them out there in a few years.
And we've still not yet eaten the real Dwarf Mr. Snow, Dwarf Beryl Beauty, Summer Sunrise, or Dwarf Emerald Giant - three of which are being sold, and always amongst the best! Perhaps they will ripen in time for Tomatopalooza...
This project is exceeding all of my expectations by a long shot!
