The Slow Tomato Race – Tasting The Fruit

This week is a landmark in my tomato growing adventures: I have now eaten two of the fruit I have grown. Not only this, but there are a further three which are looking ripe so they will probably get eaten this week.

Week Fifteen

Week Fifteen

The reason this is such a momentous moment is that these are the first edible fruit I’ve been able to grown from a tomato plant. Previously I’ve killed three plants before they even got to this stage and the one I’m now looking after has been touch and go at times.

As you will see from the pictures, due to the plant’s stunted growth the tomatoes are rather small, but I can testify to them being tasty. With another fifteen little green balls hanging on the tips of the branches I’ll be able to have a small salad once each week for the next few months.
