A Mini Tomato Tasting of Mini Tomatoes

Mini Tomato Tasting 7/30/11

When I saw all the tomatoes I harvested of various varieties yesterday, I decided to hold a mini tomato tasting with my family.  I set the seven varieties, all cherry tomatoes, out on a plate and identified them by numbers.  I gave everyone some bread–for cleansing the palette between tomatoes, of course–and a piece of paper.

Here are the results of the 7/30/11 Chez Rea Mini Tomato Tasting:

  • 1st place = a tie between Sweet Millions and Sweet 100s  (It’s hard to tell those two apart.  So far the big difference this year appears to be size.  The Sweet Millions are bigger.)
  • 3rd place = Sweet Treats (the largest of this year’s cherry tomatoes)
  • 4th place = Solid Gold (probably the best tasting yellow tomato I’ve ever had)
  • 5th place = Sweet Hearts
  • 6th place = Red Pear
  • 7th place = Sprite

Please note, however, that ALL of them–even 7th place–were delicious.  I’m growing 23 different varieties of tomato this year, so stay tuned because I hope to hold another Chez Rea Tomato Tasting Party.  (The first one was about 5 years ago . . . it’s certainly about time!)
