2011 Review. Not a great tomato year in my area. Cool & rainy May, ok June & VERY hot & dry July
TUXHORN’S RED AND YELLOW
Late, indeterminate, bicolour beefsteak tomato, from Mrs.Ed Tuxhorn
Planted: 1 small seedling planted out May 29th.
First fruit set: July 16th
Height: Average height, about 5-6′.
First Ripe Fruit: August 29th. Late season.
Yields: Not so good. 2 large beefsteak ripened during my crappy tomato growing year. I hope that I get a few more next year (going to try it again – yes it tasted that good)
Uses: The only thing that I did with this one was fresh eating & it was excellent!
Taste: Thick skin is a drawback, but the inside is meaty, juicy & a gorgeous colour. Fruity & tasty.
Overall: A great tasting bicolour with not so great production. beautifully photogenic – can you call a tomato photogenic? Hmm… well it is. Grow it again & hope for more!
Don’t forget – my taste buds are different from yours, as is my weather, soil, growing habits etc. You may agree or disagree with my review. Grow it yourself & tell me if you like it (:
