Hello everyone.
I show photos of my first tomato "Taiga".
It is very beautiful and colorful, and with a very good flavor, an authentic wonder of colors.
Thanks Karen

Taiga and Polaris have germinated down under. Others should not be too far behind

Yay! My first True Colours is showing some blush! It is probably almost 1 kg... will have to weigh it upon harvesting.

I saw that Secret Seed Cartel has started to list some of your varieties, so I'll try some next summer. Already can't wait to see how they will do in my growing conditions and how they will taste !

.. and the weight was.. 750 grams!

So far, that is my record tomato! No need to hit the 1 kg mark .. it is large enough for three people.

The taste was good - but not the best. I probably allowed it to get a bit overripe.
Next time, I'll know better and will slice it open while it still has some tartness. It is hard to determine the ideal point, as I thought the color has to be full red
I will eat the next ones while they still have more green.
