2018 Update

Simple announcement, I’ve now updated the list of tomato cultivars to include those I’ve grown in 2018. That brings to 161 the number listed. 2018 has been a somewhat peculiar year, the tomatoes are early because of the weather.

The packet says it was bred by Burpee but looking through Burpees website, there aren’t any Emerald Green Cherry tomatoes, the only green cherry…… Continue reading Tomato Emerald Green Cherry
