A tomato of great beauty.................



I picked this one yesterday, and I think it really is a tomato of great beauty. Tomatoes don't have to be round, or pointy or have to be anything other than their tomato-ey selves - the taste is what counts, and the taste of this is almost indescribable - soft, ripe, juicy, sweet, tangy, full of flavour, really tastes like it's doing you good LOL The variety is Costeluto Fiorentino - there are a few more to come, and I'll definitely be growing them again next year. You wouldn't get many in a Kilner jar, though.................LOL

I've had a several oddly shaped big tomatoes this year - Black from Tula is a monstrosity, but totally delicious. You could roast them and make passata to bottle.
