In addition to our previous post on a wider variety of the Heirloom Tomatoes grown here at Jade Gardens and Greenhouses, this is a sampling of some of the really interesting varieties of tomatoes that have got people talking and wondering. We grow them here and they’ll be ready for planting as soon as the danger of frost is over.Tomato enthusiasts looking for an exotic variety that is both delicious and easy to grow, should consider the Black Cherry Tomato. It is said to be very sweet and juicy with a rich smoky flavour. The plant matures early in the season with huge clusters of tomatoes and is very prolific. This variety of tomato is indeterminate, meaning they grow like a vine, not a bush type. So, you’ll need to take off the sideshoots and keep the vigorous growth in check. Beyond just the aesthetic appeal of Yellow Lemon Boy Tomatoes, the vine is both a vigorous grower and disease resistant. Its fruit is beautiful and bright and is a very sweet variety. You’ll want to pick this variety before it becomes overly mature as the colour and texture will change. This Pink Cherry Tomato is known to be low acid but very sweet. It was developed for Senior Citizens (and those prone to heart burn) but is appreciated by most who try this plant’s bounty. You’ll find medium sized rose-pink fruit on a dwarf bush-type tomato plants. So if you live locally, in Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga or the Georgetown areas, and you hear people talking about these plants, please come on in to Jade Gardens and Greenhouses. We want to talk to you about them too!
