Lovely!!
Mine are nowhere close to that color. Large, yes, but still a far cry from mature..
I'm even thinking about taking the largest one indoors to prevent the plant from falling over. No amount of staking seems to be sufficient when the plant wants to bend down..

Thank you for the photos Nico! Yours looks beautiful and I’m glad you liked the flavour. I am happy to hear that you may plant them again next season and I hope you may get better production from them I wonder if it was the heat as it was a tough summer in many places.
I’m glad you got a few at least to try.

I think if there’s any coulour on it that’s what I would do.
It’s generslly pretty early for a large tomato, say around or under 75 days from setting out in normal conditions.
I hope it’s worth your patience

Default Progress with my Taiga

My Taiga has one really nice fruit forming that is big and pointed and looks perfect. Not ripe yet but its coming. I have noticed that a lot of the other fruit are flat like a beefsteak. The picture attached is really only the big one but you can see one of the flat ones right behind it. I will add a picture of them when I get a minute. Is anyone else getting a mix?

Thanks! (I am sooooo looking forward to that big one getting ripe!!!

Pete

All my Taiga's appear to be pointed heart shaped. They aren't really large like many I've seen here. Tomorrow I will taste!

Default Midnight Sun

Here is a photo from one I picked today weighing 15.2 ounces and it’s not the biggest one - still have quite a few still on the vine. The other photo is from my neighbor’s plant which she totally enjoyed!

Hello everyone.
I show you a picture of my first Polaris tomato, a very vigorous plant from the beginning and tolerant of diseases, 80 days after its definitive transplant, it has many seeds and very good flavor

Another photo of my first Midnight sun tomato.
80 days since its definitive transplant, maybe I picked it up a little green, but its flavor has surprised me again, it has few seeds, tremendously good, another one that will grow next season.
Karen you have to be very proud of the great work you have done, I love Midnight sun.

Just posting to say that True Colours is a jewel of a tomato: the prettiest I've grown! It also has excellent taste, and will be returning to my greenhouse next year.
