Heatwave Tomato Followup

In a previous post, I said I'd report back on 'Heatwave' tomato and here's my conclusion-- with this summer's late fruit onset (was it me? was it the weather?), 'Heatwave' was my best producer.

Yes, it stood up to Sacramento heat. Fruits are fairly large, round, bright red, and very meaty. These are not pulpy tomatoes that, when sliced, turn your sandwich bread into gross pink wet glop. Compared to other varieties I've grown, 'Heatwave' feels firmer than usual when ripe. They also seem to last well on the counter when picked a little on the firm side.

Don't get me wrong. I like me a wet, pulpy tomato... just not between two slices of bread. A soft, juicy heirloom seems more at home on a plate with mozzarella and olive oil or in a salad.

And the flavor? Drum roll, please... I pronounce 'Heatwave' flavor to be... decent. It reminds me of 'Early Girl', which I dubbed 'Late Girl'this year. 'Heatwave' won't rock your world... nor will it break your heart. There's something to be said for that.

I'll try to remember to post a pic.</img> </img> </img> </img> </img> </img>
