How do the Super Sauce tomatoes taste?
This year I planted regular Roma and just a few Amish paste. Looks like my Romas are going to be small this year, but there are alot of them out there. The plants are just loaded.
I also planted some Early Girl and Wonder slicer tomatoes.
Burpee's Super SauceWOW! Without having to root through the linked post, what variety is it? And how's the taste - both in sauce and fresh cut? Does it have the intensity of the classic Italian plums?
Thank you.@R2elk Thanks for the reply! I love reading your posts, especially about gardening. You always have so much info to share.
I plan to cheat on the sauce and paste - I will dehydrate a bunch of tomatoes as they start to trickle in this summer and add the powdered tomatoes to the "main picking" of fresh when I am ready to can them. Last year I froze the tomatoes until i had enough for a batch of canning, but the freezer is fairly full, so dehydrating them seems the way to go this year. I will save alot of dried tomatoes also, they are very handy to have when cooking.
I spent 2 1/2 hours trying to uncover my tomatoes from the weeds. I only got a few plants done, the remainder of the 2 rows of tomatoes will be weeded this week, as I make time after work.
sounds like it might be one of the Cherokee purples, i had the same problem with them, only planted the one year, you could go on one of the seed catalogs and see if you can find what kind it is, but that won't help with the crackingThanks @TooCheep
The "interesting" thing is we haven't had much rain at all until Isaias went through yesterday. That is quite evident as the pond behind the barn gets lower and lower. Though I've not had to water the garden much the last couple of weeks, we've gotten enough occasional rain every few days.
