The Multi Coloured Tomato Show!

It seems that the colour I am really lacking on my patch this year is red! Chocolate Cherry, Sungold, Ildi and Great Wall of China provide this display.

Great Wall of China? Really? I must have that tomato in my garden next year. Which one is it?

Lovely assortment. Here in Maine, we've still had but two Sungolds for the year. Still hoping...

Those are some pretty tomatoes! We've started eating the Great Wall of China tomatoes and they are so good we fight over them :) I have to make sure I save some seeds from one or two.

Wow! Those are some pretty colors for tomatoes. Some even look like huge red grapes.

Well, that one at 11 o'clock is kind of red-ISH. Eh, who needs red when you have all those other great colors?! So cool about the GWOC, glad they fruited for you. Gorgeous array!

WOW! What a beautiful selection! My tomatoes are a bit of a disappointment this year - I think the light levels in the greenhouse area bit low.

How cares about the perfect shade of tomato red? They look fabulous, hope they tasted just as good. Lovely!!

Gorgeous and they must taste divine. I got a new one too this year, it's red with orange stripes and the taste is great. That chocolate cherry is my fav.

Oh, I almost forgot, you asked about the japanese wineberries: they taste really sweet so you could eat them like that but you can also use them in the kitchen in the same way as you would blackberries, eventhough the wineberries are sweeter.

I do like some variety in my tomatoes too. Yet I have friends who don't think it's a tom unless it's red. That would be just boring!
