My list of 2010 tomatoes is (I think) complete. Someone stop me from buying more! Beautiful, healthy starts this year, thanks to that warm spell a while back. The season is “iffy,” though, because of the cold snap now, according to at least one tomato farmer. We shall see.
Here are the tomatoes I’m putting in. What about you?
- Oregon Spring (early small round, glowing review in Territorial catalogue)
- Moskovich (early small round, favorite of several growers)
- Black Prince (new early small round black)
- Saucey (best plum I’ve tried)
- Amish Paste (plum recommended by Anthony Boutard)
- Ananas Noire (yellow, green, and red slicer)
- Cherokee Purple (third generation saved seeds from a start I gave a neighbor)
- Black Krim (black slicer)
- Sun Gold (perennial favorite cherry chez nous)
- Sweet Million (ditto)
And PNWesterners, what do you do about peppers? We have better luck with anaheim- or cubanelle-type, thin-skinned peppers than the large thick-walled bells in Western Oregon, but these squat ones were a bumper crop at the farmer’s market last year. I had a great, albeit late, yield on habaneros last year, and jalapeños always do well for me, as do long Hungarian mild peppers. I bought one NuMex anaheim, and will be experimenting with a few more, including chilacas (if I can find starts). Any varieties that always work for you?
