What are the pros? Fantastic Dried, 1st to mature
What are the cons? Hard to peel
These are the first tomatoes in my garden every year. I transplant out 5-6 week old plants on June 1st. I tie these up to a heavy duty wire 4 foot tall trellis. This year the first ones were ripe on August 8, which is great in Spokane, WA. We irrigate by drip irrigation, as it rarely rains in the summer here. These tomatoes are OK fresh, but absolutely fantastic when dried. Like sweet tomato taffy with an acidic bite. Peel, de-seed and slice 3/8" 1/2" thick to dry. Just pack the dried tomatoes in a tightly sealed canning jar and store them in a cool place. Try pairing them lightly toasted pecan or walnut halves and red wine for an super simple appetizer.
